Build a Kit

If a disaster occurred in northeastern Ohio, would you be ready?

Tornadoes, blizzards, ice storms, prolonged utility outages, and industrial accidents are some of the incidents that have occurred here and may occur again. 

During times of disaster or emergency, safety forces will be stretched thin and you might be on your own for several days. Prepare yourself and your family by building and maintaining disaster survival kits for your home, vehicle, and pets.
