September 2013 National Disaster Preparedness Month Community Toolkit


Disaster Preparedness

The Ready Responder Toolkit

First Responders serve a critical role in emergency operations whether preserving lives, protecting property or providing other essential services. The Ready Responder Toolkit (PDF – 2.8Mb) is designed to provide emergency response agencies with planning tools to help prepare their first responders and their families for emergencies. These tools are flexible and customizable. This toolkit can be used to meet the specific needs of their agency or department.

To obtain a copy of the tool kit, go to: http://www.ready.gov/sites/default/files/documents/files/RRToolkit.pdf
