Don't be scared--Be prepared!
Being prepared for emergencies is everyone's responsibility and can make a world of difference when faced with a very serious emergency such as the 2013 Flood. The City of Loveland's Office of Emergency Management urges Loveland residents to make an emergency response plan for themselves and their families.
Larimer County has prepared a comprehensive guide for residents outlining important steps to help them be prepared for emergencies, including:
- Doing an assessment of how prepared you are now
- Becoming familiar with emergency resources
- Assembling a disaster supply kit
- And making a plan for yourself, your family and even your pets
Home emergency plans should include how you and your family would 'shelter-in-place' for up to three days--that would mean having enough food, water, medications and so on for that period of time. A plan should also include what you'd need to do and have ready-to-go if you had to evacuate your home for several days.
The guide also contains helpful information on preparing for severe weather events, including fires, tornadoes and flooding. View the complete Larimer County Emergency Preparedness Guide.
More information on emergency preparedness is available from Ready.gov.
All of the City of Loveland's information outlets, including web, cable TV, radio and social media are used to relay information to the public in the event of an emergency. Being familiar with these information sources and knowing where to go for information when an emergency occurs helps reduce anxiety as well as the possibility of receiving wrong information. Check out the City's communication outlets.
