Emergency management is a coordinated effort, involving local, state, and federal government agencies as well as volunteer organizations and businesses.
Within an integrated emergency management framework, these entities assist citizens and their communities to prepare for, respond to, recover from, and eliminate or reduce the effects of natural, man-made, civil, and technological emergencies or disasters.
September is National Preparedness Month. Iowa is a land of many seasons; seasons that bring with them floods, tornados, extreme heat, blizzards, and more. Use this month to learn more about how to be “prepared, not scared.”
