Are you prepared?

Emergency preparedness should begin in the home of each citizen. In the event of an emergency, your survival may well be determined by the water you have stored, or the storm measures you have created with your family. Below are a number of resources that can help you and your family become more prepared. 

Every Season to Prepare

An emergency preparedness guide entitled "Every Season to Prepare," has been developed for residents of Burleigh County. The booklet is funded by the Burleigh County Local Emergency Planning Committee and provides residents with emergency preparedness information, including information that is specific to the area such as the warning and notification systems.

Every Season to Prepare is a reminder that emergency preparedness is a process that requires year-round attention. 

Hard copies are available at various locations, including:

  • City/County Building
