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.

ALERTS AND WARNINGSWe are fortunate to live in an age and country where our technology can now communicate with us almost anywhere and give us advanced warnings of impending hazards or other important information.Knowing where and how you can receive the warnings and what to do when you get them can mean the difference between life and death.The information on these pages is designed to provide some background on how citizens, business and communities can be sure they receive critical warnings, what they mean and how to react.
Are you ready for severe weather? Every year Todd County, Homeland Security and Emergency Management and the National Weather Service sponsers Severe Weather Awareness Week. The week is designed to refresh, remind and educate everyone about the seasonal threats from severe weather and how to avoid them.
Friday – Winter Driving and TravelWinter driving in Minnesota can be challenging and potentially dangerous. Cold, snow and ice are demanding on drivers and passengers and on cars too.  Slick and snowy roads can make driving stressful.  Cold affects metal, rubber and other materials in your car.  It can reduce the effectiveness of your vehicle’s battery.  The combined effects can make even simple travel hazardous.
