ReadyMontCo logoBe Informed, Prepared & Involved - Be Ready
Disaster can strike quickly and without warning. It can force you to evacuate your neighborhood or confine you to your home. What would you do if basic services such as water, gas, electricity, or telephones were cut off? Local officials and relief workers will be on the scene after a disaster, but they cannot reach everyone right away.

Families can, and do, cope with disaster by preparing in advance and working together as a team. Follow the steps listed in this website to create your family’s disaster plan. Knowing what to do is your best protection and your responsibility. Be informed, prepared and involved. Are you READY?

Montgomery County continuously faces emergency situations, and yet we know that most of our residents are not prepared for them. We know another emergency is coming; we just do not know when or what it will be. But we can and must prepare now for the next emergency – whether it is natural or man-made. 
Montgomery County’s emergency professionals are among the most prepared in the nation, well-trained with the latest technologies and resources to respond to any threat posed to the county. But it takes more than our emergency professionals to be ready. Residents and businesses must do their part to be prepared, aware and involved

The Ready campaign is an educational program informing businesses and residents about the importance of preparing for any kind of natural, public health, or man-made disaster. Working together, everyone can make a difference in creating awareness, motivating preparedness and encouraging involvement. Detailed information on how to prepare can be found here.
