Community Emergency Preparedness & Response Guide

In any emergency the first line of defense to minimize the impact and extent of an emergency, is you. What, How, and When you do it, will depend on how well prepared you are.

This guide was created to assist Weston residents in preparing their own emergency plans. It is neither perfect nor complete. Some of the suggestions and tips may not be practical for some people. Other people may find it has missed some important points. 

This guide is meant to be a starting point, a tool to start the process and think about important emergency issues. It is not meant to frighten or worry anyone. It is an educational tool. Just as we teach our young children how and when to call 911, or have school fire drills, or we check for exits at hotels or large areas, we hope the guide will be used in the same way. More comprehensive lists can be found from agencies such as or the American Red Cross.
