Begin preparing in advance for the kind of emergency or even inconvenience that could threaten health, safety and peace of mind.
Some things to consider:
Contact the Leon County local emergency management office to learn about the community’s plans for certain upcoming storms, power outages and flooding. On line at
Leon County Emergency Mangement
or call 850.488.5921
Consider and list what you will need in the case of an evacuation emergency.
Gather what you need in terms of supplies and extra equipment and prescriptions and determine a reasonable evacuation and short-term stay plan now, instead of when disaster strikes.
In your kit of food, water, medication and important paperwork (see Emergency Plan), don’t forget extra eyeglasses and hearing-aid batteries, as well as a list of their doctors, pharmacies and medication numbers for refills if lost.
