Surviving the Storm

The Harford County Department of Emergency Services has the responsibility to plan and be prepared for county-wide emergencies and disasters. However, it is each citizen's responsibility to be prepared, that each member of the household is kept informed, and to maintain a Disaster Supply Kit including both a Go Kit and Shelter Kit.

Personal Preparedness: pdf 

After a disaster, you and your family should be prepared to be on your own for at least seven days. In some emergencies, such as pandemic influenza, you may need to prepare for a week or more. First Responders will be busy and may not be able to provide immediate care to all who need it. More...

NOAA Weather Radios:

Weather Radio (NWR) is a nationwide network of radio stations broadcasting continuous weather information directly from the nearest National Weather Service office. NWR broadcasts official Weather Service warnings, watches, forecasts and other hazard information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Severe weather can often strike quickly, even during the early morning hours. An alarm from weather alert radio can mean the difference between life and death. Harford County Emergency Management staff strongly recommends residents to buy a weather alert radio. Just like a smoke detector, this radio can save your life. More...

Citizens with Special Needs:

Emergencies happen all the time. If you are a Harford County Resident with a disability, like everyone else, you need to be prepared. Also, remember when preparing you Disaster Supply Kit and Go Kit that you need to include any special medications or equipment necessary for your particular needs. More...
