As Alaskans, preparedness is used in our daily lives due to the remoteness of our communities.  Emergency Preparedness is identifying the hazards our communities are susceptible to and documenting the actions we must take to respond.


Each community in Alaska is unique.  We can assist your community through a self-lead emergency planning process that will give your community ownership of the emergency plan created for the benefit of the whole community.
