Culture of Preparedness = Individual Preparedness, Departmental Readiness, Institutional Resiliency
Often times, large scale emergencies and disasters require individuals to take an active role in protecting themselves and those around them. Because of this, a collaborative and inclusive approach is taken during all planning processes. This ensures those involved with the initial response to emergencies are also involved with the planning process and are aware of actions to take when minutes or seconds count.
