Are you prepared?

Does your family know what to do and where to go in case of an emergency or severe weather? March 28 - April 1 is National Severe Weather Awareness Week.

Think back one year ago and how fast the severe weather and tornado hit Lancaster County.

We know many times there is little warning of these types of storms. Families can be prepared to cope with these disasters by preparing in advance.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency and Red Cross suggest the following:

  • Get informed
  • Make a plan
  • Assemble a kit
