Preparedness

Maine Prepares

Visit Maine Prepares. You'll find fact sheets, tips and news to help your family, school, business, community or service organization prepare for any emergency or disaster

Emergency preparedness starts with each individual and family. Businesses, schools and neighborhoods can also learn to be more resilient, more prepared to "weather the storm."

For public officials, preparedness encompasses planning, training, exercise, public information and education, facilities and communication.

For business owners it needs to include thinking about emergencies that could affect customer, supplier or employees.

School administrators need to include local responders and parents in their preparedness steps.

We can never foresee everything that will happen in an emergency. But by preparing, we develop a resiliency that will allow us to respond effectively and recover quickly.
