Emergency Management


Disasters strike anytime and anywhere. It takes many forms – a tornado, flood, winter storm, fire, a hazardous spill or acts of terrorism. To prepare for these disasters, emergency management can be defined as the coordination and integration of all activities necessary to build, sustain, and improve the capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from or mitigate against threatened or actual natural disasters, acts of terrorism, or other manmade disasters.

For Americans, preparedness must now account for man-made disasters as well as natural ones. Knowing what to do during an emergency is an important part of being prepared and may make all the difference when seconds count.Some of the things you can do to prepare for the unexpected, such as making an emergency supply kit and developing an emergency plan, are the same for both a natural or man-made emergency.
Get Ready Gopher teams up with MN Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster to show the many ways you can effectively donate or volunteer to help disaster victims- with a little help from the Good Idea Fairy Himself! 
Are you ready for severe weather? Each year, Todd County in collaboration with HSEM, National Weather Service and local agencies sponsors Severe Weather Awareness Week in Todd County. The week is designed to refresh, remind and educate everyone about the seasonal threats from severe weather and how to avoid them.  It's also a great time to make and practice your emergency plan and build or refresh your emergency preparedness kit.
