In 2013 Longmont suffered the largest flood in its history. The Longmont local government has worked to build it's Office of Emergency Management to be prepared for our future.
Emergencies can happen at any time. Whether they are natural or man-made emergencies, residents and businesses should always be prepared. The Office of Emergency Management has added great information on their webpage to help Longmont Be Ready.
Please look for the current information regarding large-scale emergencies there. You may also find additional information on Facebook at "Longmont Fire Police OEM" or on Twitter @LongmontPS.
During the first hours and days following a disaster, essential services may not be available. Residents must be able to act on their own. Preparedness is everyone's job. Everyone should plan ahead for disaster including service providers, businesses, civic and volunteer groups, industry and neighborhood associations.
