Disaster Preparedness for Home & Community

Recent natural disasters has led the Capitol Region of Governments of Connecticut to create a website designed to educate people how to be aware, plan, and prepare for natural and man-made disasters. This website can help you learn about hazards that threaten our community, help you make plans to reunite, communicate, take shelter or evacuate with your family in the event of a disaster, or learn how to assemble and store an emergency kit.
