Be Prepared!

“The more you are prepared to help yourself and your neighbors in
an emergency, the more that frees up emergency personnel to help
people who didn’t prepare.” 

— Hood River County Sheriff Matt English, Wasco County Sheriff Lane Magill,
Klickitat County Sheriff Bob Songer, and Skamania County Sheriff Dave Brown
