Emergency Prepared​ness Program
Caroline County Health Department
Are You Prepared?
It is up to you.  In the event of a natural or manmade emergency, you and your family can feel helpless and afraid or you can be prepared and ready.
The basic steps in getting prepared are:
Know the Risks; Make a Plan; Get Prepared and Be Informed. 
Preparation includes building a family emergency kit that contains, among other things, food, water, medicine, first aid supplies, battery powered communications equipment (radio), and batteries.  Preparation also includes a family communications plan so your family can stay in touch during an emergency.
