The City of Asheville and the Asheville Fire Department highly recommend that all citizens take important steps now to prepare for potential severe weather and other emergencies in the future. The change of seasons is a great reminder that we all have personal responsibilities for our own safety and for those depending on us. It is important to make sure you have an emergency supply kit and be prepared for whatever type of disaster that you may face. Time spent planning ahead of an emergency will allow you to remain calm and take appropriate actions should an emergency occur.
