We are continuing to lean forward to ensure the city is in a constant "state of readiness". Whether this is through public education, organizing the city's response during emergencies, planing, training, and exercising staff on roles and responsibilities or assisting our folks who have been impacted throughout their recovery process. The Office of Emergency Management will always be there when our citizens need us the most.
As we keep working, it is important for you to "Get Ready" for an emergency, know your evacuation zone, and continue to prepare your family as much as possible for an inevitable disaster that will hit our community. So when a disaster occurs, Tampa will bounce back even better than before.
If YOU would like to get more involved in emergency management and be part of emergency response during a disaster, visit the Greater-Tampa Community Emergency Response Team (GT-CERT) and look for opportunities to train and be part of the team!
