Emergency Information

Fortunately, most of the year our County has lovely weather, at least in terms of getting around or receiving services. Our winters are mild, if rainy, and our summers are warm but not baking. But sometimes the weather gets wild. As a citizen, you have a responsibility to prepare yourself and your family. As a public service agency, we have a responsibility to restore service as quickly as safely possible.

This page is a place for you to find out what we're doing to get you from A to B and to also find some resources to help prepare your family.

Detours Happen: Are you prepared to be stranded at work, at home, on the road, for three days? You should be. The Department of Emergency Management has a great links page to help you prepare.

Readiness is Not an Accident: The Department is actively preparing for emergencies in a number of ways. We know that it isn't IF an emergency will happen, but WHEN.
