Hamilton County Emergency Management has been working with county-wide public safety representatives to produce an updated Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan. The first draft of this plan is available for review by the public at the Hamilton East Public Library until July 2nd. The plan can be found at the library reference desk. We welcome any feedback on the form provided in the plan binder.
A disaster supply kit is simply a collection of basic items your household may need in the event of an emergency.
Try to assemble your kit well in advance of an emergency. You may have to evacuate at a moment’s notice and take essentials with you. You will probably not have time to search for the supplies you need or shop for them.
This means having your own food, water and other supplies in sufficient quantity to last for at least 72 hours.
