One of the advantages of owning an RV is that we can always be prepared in the case of an emergency.
However, being prepared is more than just stocking our RVs with food, water, and fuel, it's having the facts about emergency response agencies.
For numbers to call, and information about the services they provide, check here:

From the website:
Throughout the Nation's history, citizens have relied on the Army to respond to their needs in disasters. In a typical year, the Corps of Engineers responds to more than 30 Presidential disaster declarations, plus numerous state and local emergencies. Emergency responses usually involve cooperation with other military elements and Federal agencies in support of State and local efforts.

Under the Stafford Act, the Corps supports the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in carrying out the Federal Response Plan, which calls on 26 Federal departments and agencies to provide coordinated disaster relief and recovery operations. Under this plan, the Army has the lead responsibility for public works and engineering missions.
It is difficult to know, more than a few days in advance, when or where the next hurricane or other natural disaster will strike, or whether any given year will be heavy or light, but we know that natural disasters will come.
