resolve to be ready in 2018!

This year, resolve to be ready by taking a few basic steps to ensure your family's preparedness at home or on the road.

Build a Kit that contains the items you need to survive on your own for up to 72 hours.

Make a Plan so that all family members know where to go and who to call if they can't make it home, and what to take with you if you're told to evacuate. 

Stay Informed by signing up for emergency alerts in our community, then learning more about the threats and hazards we face.

Get Involved in our community's preparedness efforts by talking with friends and checking in with neighbors, or learn more about how you can partner with organizations that help during an emergency.


Are you ready for winter weather hazards?

Winter Storms are among the natural hazards we face in Prince William County. Snow and ice can make travel difficult and your safest option may be to stay where you are.  An emergency kit for your home, car, and workplace will help you weather a storm.  Add a blanket and warm clothes for each member of the family.  Be sure you are signed up for emergency alerts too!

For more information, check out our Winter Storm Preparedness page or watch the video below.
