Emergency Preparedness

Knowing what to do before, during, and after an emergency can make all the difference when seconds count. We encourage Hudson citizens and businesses to "prepare, plan and stay informed."

In 2003 the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) launched the Ready campaign, which is designed to educate and empower Americans to prepare for and respond to emergencies including natural and man-made disasters. The goal of the campaign is to get the public involved and ultimately to increase the level of basic preparedness across the nation.

The Ready campaign asks individuals to do three key things: (1) build an emergency supply kit, (2) make a family emergency plan and (3) be informed about the different types of emergencies that could occur and their appropriate responses.
