Alachua County, like all counties in Florida, is vulnerable to a variety of hazards and threats that could disrupt our day-to-day lives. From natural disasters such as tropical events, tornados, and severe thunderstorms, to man-made events like cyberattacks, terrorism, and civil disturbances, it is more important than ever to make sure that you and your family are informed, prepared, and ready year-round for any type of event that could affect our area.
While it may be far too easy to panic and wait until the last minute, taking a small amount of time to create a disaster supply kit and develop, communicate, and practice your emergency plans can save you valuable time if disaster does strike. We encourage you to visit some of the links below to find helpful information on preparation for all hazards:
