Are You Ready?

JBLM Hazard Awareness and Emergency Preparedness Program

Located in the Pacific Northwest, JBLM can experience natural disasters, including floods, landslides, severe weather storms, wildland fires, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. Our region also faces the possibility of disruptions to the transportation and utility systems; train, plane, and ship accidents; hazardous material spills; criminal and terrorist incidents; and the spread of contagious disease.

In order to maintain readiness and ensure the well-being of our Soldiers, Airmen, civilians, retirees, and their families, we all need to be prepared to respond to emergencies. Disasters can strike quickly and without warning. What would you do if basic services such as: food, water, gas, electricity, medical care, telephones, were cut off?

Emergency Preparedness means being prepared for all kinds of emergencies; being able to respond in time of crisis to save lives and property; and to help your community return to normal life after a disaster occurs.
