Across the State of Alaska and right here at home in Unalaska we face the potential to encounter natural and man-made disasters including; Earthquakes, Tsunamis, Volcanoes, Sea Storms, Floods, Avalanches, Landslides, and even Wildfires. This page contains preparedness information specific to our local community.
Some of the things you can do to prepare for the unexpected, such as making an emergency supply kit and developing a family communications plan, are the same for both a natural or man-made emergency.
However, there are important differences among potential emergencies that will impact the decisions you make and the actions you take. The Alaska Division of Homeland Security & Emergency Management (AK DHS&EM) has put together an amazing collection of information to help Alaskans "Learn, Prepare, Prevail".
This includes information about the potential emergencies that could happen where you live and the appropriate way to respond to them. Find out more by visiting the AK DHS&EM - Learn, Prepare, Prevail webpage.
