Additional emergency preparedness information:

Did you know that in the event of a major hurricane (or other emergency) significantly impacting the Hampton-Roads area of Virginia that the governor can order that the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) lane reversal plan for Interstate 64 be implemented to facilitate evacuation?  

Ready Virginia is a statewide public education effort to prepare Virginians for all hazards, including natural disasters and potential terrorist attacks.  Ready Virginia’s Hurricane Evacuation Guide is a useful resource to download / printout and have on-hand.

The Federal Emegency Management Agency (FEMA) launched the U.S. government's Ready website in February 2003 to serve as a national public service advertising campaign designed to educate and empower Americans to prepare for and respond to emergencies including natural and man-made disasters. The goal of the campaign is to get the public involved and ultimately to increase the level of basic preparedness across the nation.

Are You Ready? An In-depth Guide to Citizen Preparedness is FEMA’s most comprehensive source on individual, family, and community preparedness.
