We cannot predict when an emergency will strike, but we can plan. Most of the time, life in El Paso goes on without incident. But when an emergency strikes, be prepared. Our Ready El Paso website will provide you with important facts, valuable tips and critical reminders for developing emergency preparedness plans to help you, your family and pets survive any type of conceivable disaster.
Disaster can strike quickly and without warning. It
can force you to evacuate your neighborhood or confine you to your home. What
would you do if basic services--water, gas, electricity or telephones--were cut
off? Local officials and relief workers will be on the scene after a disaster,
but they cannot reach everyone right away. Where will your family be when
disaster strikes? They could be anywhere--at work, at school or in the car. How
will you find each other? Will you know if your children are safe?
