What steps can I take to be as prepared as possible in case of an emergency?
Emergency preparedness is important for everyone, and it is especially vital for people with access and functional needs who may need additional preparations to stay safe during an emergency. All County residents are encouraged to sign up for notifications, which is a free and easy way to get emergency alerts sent directly to your cell phone or mobile device, landline, or email. You can sign up for AlertSCC notifications here. In addition, the  County Office of Emergency Management’s website has resources to help all County residents design a disaster safety plan for their families and loved ones.
