The Everett Herald's 2017 Snohomish County Disaster Preparedness Guide is Now Available
For three consecutive years the Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management has partnered with the Everett Herald to produce a specialty insert guide on disaster preparedness. This year the guide focuses on the county's move to increase the recommended number of days individuals should stock up on food, water, and supplies to 14 days per person. The guide also provides information about planning for pets, fire safety, preparedness for families, the Map Your Neighborhood Program, and much more. To download the 2017 guide click here.
