Emergency Management

Description

Located in Southeastern Arizona, Fort Huachuca can experience natural disasters, which include flash floods, severe weather storms, wildland fires, and earthquakes. Our region (FEMA IX) could also faces possible disruptions to transportation and utility systems; airplane accidents; hazardous material spills; criminal and terrorist incidents; and the spread of contagious disease.

In order to maintain readiness and ensure the well-being of our Soldiers, civilians, retirees and their families, we all need to be prepared to respond to all possible emergencies. Disasters can strike quickly and without warning. What would you do if basic services—food, water, gas, electricity, medical care, telephones—were cut off?

Emergency Preparedness means being prepared for all kinds of emergencies; being able to respond in time of crisis to save lives and property; and to help your community return to normal life after a disaster occurs.
