Emergency Preparedness


Think you need to isolate yourself during a public health emergency? Nope. Preparedness is the key.

Preparing for emergencies is not new. You take steps to stay safe every day. For instance, you wear your seat belt in the car just in case you are in an accident. You make your children wear helmets when they ride their bicycles. Your great-grandparents probably had extra supplies in their home: soap and shampoo in bathroom closets, onions and potatoes stored in the basement, and canned goods on pantry shelves. They understood the value and wisdom of having a little extra on hand for emergencies, too.

New Hampshire has its share of emergencies including ice storms, tornadoes, floods and power outages. That is why New Hampshire launched the ReadyNH Stay.Leave.Connect campaign. The materials on this Web site can help you and your family to stay safe and be prepared for any emergency. www.nh.gov/readynh/

The PHE.gov Preparedness-Emergency-Response Widget links you to the latest public health emergency preparedness, response and recovery information. During a national public health emergency, the widget will change to direct you to the information related to the current emergency.
