Emergency Planning and Management


FEMA’s 4 Steps to Emergency Preparedness

1. Get An Emergency Kit

Be prepared to improvise and use what you have on hand to make it on your own for at least 5-7 days. While there are many things that might make you more comfortable, think first about fresh water, food and clean air. Consider two kits; one to shelter in place and the other should be lightweight, smaller version you can grab and go.

2. Make A Plan

Develop a family communication plan, a plan to shelter-in-place, and an evacuation plan. Know your work and school emergency plans.

3. Be Informed

Know what Denali's risks are, how to generally prepare for all emergencies, and what actions to take for specific emergency situations. Sign up to receive Denali Borough News & Press Releases by email HERE, and monitor local radio, newspapers, and social media during an emergency.

4. Get Involved

There are many ways that you can help your neighborhood or community to be better prepared for emergencies.
