Resolve to be Ready


Every year nearly half of all Americans will make at least one New Year's resolution. The North Dakota Department of Emergency Services (NDDES) is asking citizens across our state to "Resolve to be Ready."

The "Resolve to be Ready" campaign was developed by the federal Department of Homeland Security, which is partnering with FEMA's Citizen Corps Program to encourage individuals, families, businesses, and other organizations to get a kit, make a plan, and be informed.

Remember-it is incumbent upon all of us to be prepared for any emergency-we all need to responsible for ourselves and more importantly, our children and our families.
