The Library joins agencies and organizations across the country by participating in National Preparedness Month this September! Let’s take a close look at our level of readiness and find out what to do when disasters or emergencies arise.

Preparedness Programs (updated weekly)
Pill Bottle Survival Kits: September 24, 27, 29
Estes Park Health Emergency Preparedness: Friday, September 23 at 11 AM
Past programs can be viewed here.

Throughout the month, stop by the Library and pick up a copy of The Home Ignition Zone from Colorado State Forest Service, or Larimer County’s Emergency Preparedness Guide. You can get tips on preparing your home for wildlife or next steps you can take today to be ready for the next emergency event.

While you’re in the building, we can help you register for NOCO Alerts with Larimer County or Boulder County Office of Emergency Management. You’ll be rewarded with your choice of a hand crank flashlight, water straw, or an emergency sticker that lets first responders know how many people and animals are in your home. Click the image to the right for full details, tips, and tricks about registering for alerts and/or updating your alert preferences.

Looking for something to do from the comfort of your own home? Complete the online scavenger hunt — participants will be entered into a drawing for an Emergency Preparedness Kit from the Red Cross.

We can all do our proactive part to be ready for the next disaster or emergency. Let’s get preppin’!
