Local Weather Hazards
An important step you can take to prepare yourself and your family for natural disasters is to purchase a NOAA weather radio. These radios can be purchased at most hardware stores for around $30, and will provide you with the latest forecasts and weather information 24 hours a day.
Emergency supply kits in your home and each vehicle are critical in preparing for Colorado's varying weather. Storms can cause power loss and preparation is key in dealing with the situation. The information provided in the following documents will assist you in developing your emergency supplies and plans.
