Mecosta County Nixle Scheduled Test & Preparedness Information

THIS IS A TEST OF THE MECOSTA COUNTY NIXLE EMERGENCY NOTIFICATION SYSTEM ALONG WITH PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION

From the Do 1 Thing organization: The goal for November is to remember important items that may be overlooked when leaving your home in a disaster.

Any emergency is easier to handle when you have prepared ahead of time. Put together an emergency kit with important items to keep at home, and a go bag with items you will need to take with you if you evacuate. Think about what you and your family would need in a disaster. You can make kits for your home, car or workplace. Emergencies can happen anywhere.

When severe weather is predicted, make sure your car has a full tank of gas. You don’t want to wait in line for gas if you are told to evacuate. Some storms may also knock out electricity, causing gas stations to close.
