Disasters come in all shapes and sizes and are disruptive to our normal
routines, whether at home or work. Flooding, power outages, windstorms,
ice storms, heavy snows, fires, and tornadoes have over the years
wreaked havoc in Solon.

Most people believe that city services will be able to provide
assistance during any disaster but if the situation is large enough,
that may not be the case. During a disaster, calls for assistance are
prioritized based on severity. Your situation may not be as severe as
others in the community. There may be a time when you will need to be
self-sufficient for a while before help can arrive.
Disasters can happen with little or no warning. Don't wait for an emergency to think about being prepared. Being prepared for an emergency is the best way to ensure a successful outcome.
