Emergency Preparedness and Response: Natural Disasters and Severe Weather

Look to this website from the CDC to find out how to protect your, your family's, and your community's health and safety before, during, and after a natural disaster or severe weather event.

This website, from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is an informational resource providing guidance on health- and safety-related issues related to preparing for natural disasters and severe weather. The site offers information on earthquakes, extreme heat, floods, hurricanes, landslides and mudslides, wildfire, tsunamis, and more. Information is categorized by hazard, and includes health and safety information pertinent for all disasters.

The individual webpages for each hazard provide background information on the hazard, as well as guidance on what individuals and communities can do to protect themselves before, during, and after the hazard occurs. Each page also provides links to additional resources.
