 Arizona Hazards

Arizona is susceptible to an array of natural disasters and emergencies.  And while some pose a more immediate threat to life and property in The Grand Canyon State, it is in the best interest of individuals, families and entire communities to take precautions.

Emergencies do not take rain checks and seldom make appointments.  And even when an imminent threat is detected, who among us can truly say that they’re ready for any situation.  Fortunately, getting prepared for all manner of emergencies and disasters is easy and can be acheived in three simple steps:

1.)   Prepare a Plan that accounts for evacuations, sheltering in place, and the special needs of pets, the elderly and infants;

 

2.)   Make a Kit that addresses the survival essentials of fresh water, food, clean air and warmth, and includes financial and insurance papers, medication and credentials; and

 

3.)   Be informed by listening to the radio, watching television, reading newspapers and surfing the Internet (e.g., Ready.gov and justincasearizona.com) to learn about the diversity of emergencies and disasters, including:
