Severe Weather Awareness and Safety
The return of warmer weather also means a return of our severe storm season. It is important to know how stay safe from the dangers of severe storms including tornados, damaging wind, hail and lightning. Make sure you have a workplace and household plan and a NOAA All Hazards Radio!
"Get In and Get Information!"
That's the key to staying safe in severe weather. Severe storm season has arrived and now is the time to make sure you know what to do if there is a Severe Thunderstorm, Flash Flood or Tornado Warning for our area. When you hear the outdoor warning sirens, receive an alert on your Smartphone of a severe weather warning for your area, or see signs of a storm approaching the best thing you can do is to immediately go into the nearest sturdy building and go to a trusted information source like the radio, TV or internet news/weather service to find out what the threat is and more information on how to stay safe from it.

National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS)
The National Terrorism Advisory System, or NTAS, replaces the color-coded Homeland Security Advisory System (HSAS). This new system will more effectively communicate information about terrorist threats by providing timely, detailed information to the public, government agencies, first responders, airports and other transportation hubs, and the private sector.

What is Emergency Management?
Emergency Management is the process of preparing for, mitigating, responding to and recovering from an emergency. Emergency Management is a dynamic process. Planning, though critical, is not the only component. Training, conducting drills, testing equipment and coordinating activities with the community are other important functions.
