Many people believe that a major hurricane cannot affect them or that there is nothing they can do to protect themselves. But, it could happen to you, and there are simple, low cost steps families and businesses can take to get ready.

Your local Emergency Manager can assist you with creating your disaster plan and answer your questions about disaster preparedness in your area. Feel free to contact the Nelson County Department of Emergency Services to assist with any questions you may have on disaster preparedness.
