Community Emergency Preparedness & Response Guide
This guide was created to assist Weston residents in preparing their own emergency plans. It is neither perfect nor complete. Some of the suggestions and tips may not be practical for some people. Other people may find it has missed some important points.
This guide is meant to be a starting point, a tool to start the process and think about important emergency issues. It is not meant to frighten or worry anyone. It is an educational tool. Just as we teach our young children how and when to call 911, or have school fire drills, or we check for exits at hotels or large areas, we hope the guide will be used in the same way. More comprehensive lists can be found from agencies such as Ready.gov or the American Red Cross.
Follow the links below to find information on how you can be better prepared in the event of an emergency.
