San Miguel County Public Health contracts with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) to upgrade our ability to effectively respond to a range of public health threats. Our preparedness and response capabilities are achieved by planning, training, and exercises.
- Water – one gallon per person, per day for at least seven days.
- Food – nonperishable. Don’t forget to pack a manual can opener.
- Flashlights, extra batteries, cell phones with chargers and a battery powered radio.
- First aid kit, a seven-day medicine supply including prescription drugs, emergency blanket and toiletries.
- Copies of important documents such as insurance cards and immunization records and emergency contact information.
- Multipurpose tool, extra cash, map(s) of the area and extra sets of keys.
- Remember to include supplies for babies, pets, older individuals and those with special needs.
Make plans with family and friends in case you’re not together during an emergency. Develop a family master plan – discuss how you’ll contact each other, where you’ll meet and how you’ll stay safe in different situation.
Before and during a disaster, check all types of media for more information including news outlets, social media and website resources.
