At home

If there is a natural disaster or other emergency on the North Shore, it could take emergency crews several days to reach you, so it's important that you're able to take care of yourself and your family for at least 72 hours.

Fortunately, preparing your home and family for any kind of emergency isn't difficult or time-consuming. Just start with the basics — a family emergency plan and emergency supply kit — then work to reduce potential hazards in your home.
