Be ‘Islands Ready’ With Online Emergency Preparedness Guide
By Brendan Cowan, Director, Department of Emergency Management
As part of an ongoing effort to increase community preparedness and self-sufficiency in the islands, the Department of Emergency Management has created a new online guide at www.islandsready.org.
This tool is designed to be simple, easy to navigate and smartphone friendly.
With specific sections for seniors and Spanish speakers, in addition to useful information about local hazards, the site is a great starting point for those looking to either begin or further their disaster preparedness efforts.
As always, if you need help preparing or have questions about emergency preparedness, please don’t hesitate to contact the San Juan County & Town of Friday Harbor Department of Emergency Management at firstname.lastname@example.org or 360-370-7612.
