Emergency Preparedness

Be prepared for emergencies to keep your family safe and protect your home and community.

Be Prepared. Make a Plan, Build a Kit, Stay Informed.

During emergencies, information and advisories can come from many different sources. It is important to be prepared by signing up to get information in several ways, since not all methods are used for all types of emergencies. Sometimes power outages may occur as a result of a winter storm, which has the potential to disrupt the way that people receive information. The Westminster Department of Public Works would like to remind you to stay connected this winter.
