National Severe Weather Preparedness Week is sponsored by the National Oceanic Atmospheric Agency (NOAA) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The goal is to promote and share information about National Severe Weather Preparedness Week in your community.

Severe Weather Preparedness Checklist:

- Prepare an emergency kit with enough food, water and other supplies to last at least 72 hours.

- Create and discuss an emergency plan with your family. By planning in advance, you can determine how you and your family members will get to a safe place; how you plan to contact one another; and how you will reunite.

- Stay informed by signing up for local weather and emergency alerts. You can also receive up to date information by following local public safety agencies on Facebook and Twitter.

-Sign up and create a Safety Profile at to give 9-1-1 call takers and first responders valuable information about your household to be better protected in an emergency. This information can save valuable seconds or even minutes during an emergency.
