Get Prepared

Are You Ready?

A natural disaster can strike at any time, without warning. Learn how to make an emergency kit and plan, and protect yourself, your family, and your property.

Get Alertable

NSEM is using Alertable to send out alerts for emergencies such as severe weather and natural disasters.

If there is a disaster or other emergency on the North Shore, it could take emergency crews several days to reach you. It is therefore important you are 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. Start with the basics–a family emergency plan and emergency supply kit–and then work to reduce potential hazards in your home.
