PrintPrintEmail PageEmail Page

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.

Minnesota Winter Hazard Awareness WeekThe winter of 2011-12 was relatively mild and dry for Minnesota – but don’t be fooled – the previous winter of 2010-2011 gave Minnesota its fourth snowiest winter on record!    Everyone in Minnesota still needs to prepare for the outdoor hazards of a cold, snowy, icy winter and the indoor hazards that occur every winter.
 September 2012 is National Preparedness Month: Pledge to Prepare and Get Involved  September is National Preparedness Month (NPM). It was created in 2003 to help increase citizen emergency preparedness in the U.S. and focus on preparing yourself, those in your care, and your community for any unexpected emergency.
The Todd County Hazard Mitigation update effort kicked off with an informational public meeting at the Todd County Courthouse on February 7th 2011.  Staff from the Region Five Development Commission gave a presentation about the basics of hazard mitigation planning, and the rationale behind the MHMP program.
