Emergency situations are never convenient, which is why it is critical that our community be prepared for the unknown. Being able to respond and activate either a departmental or individual emergency plan is not an easy feat. By reviewing plans and engaging our community more frequently, we can create a culture of preparedness and actually become more resilient together. We strongly encourage everyone to become familiar with their own plans, be it an individual plan, family plan, or department plan, in order to be more resilient once an emergency strikes.
We're expecting continued periods of heavy rain across the area today and tomorrow due to Tropical Storm Nicholas. This could result in street flooding and possible power outages.
Since we are already in a "flexible mode" we urge you to watch the weather carefully and feel free to work from home if you feel you may have to deal with these issues.
