As we have learned over the past few years, you never know exactly when a disaster will strike or how severe the damage will be. We want everyone in the City of Sequim; families, businesses, schools, offices, renters and home owners to start getting prepared today.
In case of a major disaster, Sequim Police and most other emergency agencies, will not be able to respond immediately to requests for assistance. In the event of a major earthquake, it could even take hours or days, especially if there is extensive damage to utilities causing loss of power, water and communications. That's why it is so important that you take responsibility to make sure you, your family, your car and workplace are prepared to survive for up to fourteen days without access to normal services and resources.
We encourage you to use the information on this website to create your own personal preparedness plan for your family. If you own a business and have employees, we strongly suggest you make sure your employees are prepared too. This is especially important if you are involved in providing health care type services and have patients who may rely on your services.
