Sheriff High Urges Citizens to Prepare a Vehicle “Emergency Go Kit” during Emergency Preparedness Month

Sheriff Melvin C. High informs county residents to use September as National Preparedness Month - to “Be Informed, Make a Plan, Build a Kit, and Get Involved.”
As First Responders, Law Enforcement Officers are keenly aware of the importance of emergency preparedness. Sheriff High noted that one aspect of preparedness for many families involves having an “Emergency Go Kit” for family vehicles. Preparing an Emergency Go Kit in advance can save precious time if you must evacuate or seek shelter but it can also make a real difference if you’re stuck for long periods in traffic or in a weather emergency.
