In the last few years we have all bared witness to major emergencies, tragic events and natural disasters close to home and most recently on the Gulf Coast where Emergency Preparedness and Emergency Responder training and knowledge has now become a real concern we must ALL put greater focus on. Have you ever witnessed a medical or other emergency and wanted to help…but didn’t know how? Are you and your family prepared? CARE LINK EP is a special outreach program that focuses on home safety, emergency preparedness planning and emergency resources available for our community.
Based on the simple premise of knowledge = power, CARE LINK Emergency Preparedness will encompass critical elements and information provided by our Police Department as well as our County Office of Emergency Services, State Emergency Management Office and the Department of Homeland Security to strengthen Orangetown’s ability to react, respond and manage emergency situations, especially large scale disasters and weather related emergencies.
A Town of Orangetown EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS RESOURCE GUIDE has been developed that is informative and beneficial to members of our community which highlights some Local, State and Federal resources, provide tips for home safety, fire prevention and safety tips, home and car emergency preparedness tips, utility safety information, and homeland security issues. It is also the intent of this program to allow for the community to benefit from important information which can be provided by our local emergency services, Town Officials, and other County, State and Federal experts and organizations in this field in “Town Hall Meeting” style forums that can be coordinated for the community.
