Spring Severe Weather Awareness
Spring is fast approaching and with that comes the potential for severe weather such as thunderstorms, tornadoes, high winds, and flooding. In preparation for severe weather, Clermont County residents are encouraged to:
- Get informed about the different hazards that could occur in your community. Learn the appropriate response to the risks that you and your family may face. Also, check out the Outdoor Warning Siren page for more information on:
• A “Watch” versus a “Warning”;
• Activation of outdoor warning sirens; and
• What to do when the siren sounds.
- Create a family emergency plan. You and your loved ones may not be together when a disaster strikes, so it is important to plan in advance. Develop a plan on how you will communicate with one another, how and where you will reconnect, and what you will do in each type of emergency.
- Build an emergency supply kit. Following a disaster, it may take time for power to be restored and emergency workers to reach your community. It is important to have an emergency supply kit with food, water, and other necessary supplies to last a minimum of three days.
- Get involved in emergency preparedness. Spread the preparedness message with relatives, friends and neighbors. Preparedness is contagious. Click here to learn more about how you can volunteer with local preparedness and response organizations.
