We encourage all of our citizens and visitors to San Miguel County to make personal preparedness a priority. Historically, rural and mountain culture prizes self-sufficiency as a core value, and when it comes to preparedness we encourage it. Work to assemble a preparedness kit for your home and vehicle. Include things like shelf stable food, water, flashlights, batteries and alternative power sources such as phone charging banks. You may also find it valuable to keep warm clothing, waterproof layers and an extra pair of comfortable shoes in your vehicle kit as well.
You will find links to preparedness resources on this page. We also encourage you to visit Ready.gov for more valuable emergency and disaster information and resources such as Personal Preparedness Kits, Pet Preparedness and Business Preparedness.
