Prepare a Kit. Make a Plan. Stay Informed.
During recent weeks, Central New York has been affected by severe weather conditions.   A
 multi -county effort has responded to the challenge to ensure the health and safety of Central New York residents. We want reassure the Central New York community that Onondaga, Madison, and Oswego Counties are continuing to work collaboratively to plan and prepare for all types of emergencies that may arise.
Kevin E. Wisely, Commissioner of Onondaga County Emergency Management encourages Onondaga County residents to take a few simple steps to be sure you are prepared in the event of an emergency: Get a Kit. Make a plan. Stay informed.
Prepare a Kit: Your emergency supply kit should contain three days worth of items. This should include water (one gallon of water for each person per day), non-perishable foods, a first aid kit, prescriptions, a flashlight, and a battery-operated radio with extra batteries. If you own pets, remember to include their food and supplies in your kit. 
Make a Plan: Discuss and agree on an emergency plan with your family. Get a plan form that your family can use by going to ready.ongov.net. Fill this out and save it with your important documents and supplies.
Stay Informed: Visit ready.ongov.net to learn more about how your family can take steps to be prepared in the event of an emergency.  
Take steps now to be prepared for all types of emergencies. Prepare a Kit. Make a Plan. Be Informed.
