Anything can happen at any time. Being ready ahead of a disaster is the most critical action you can take to protect the things that matter most: your family, your home, your pets, yourselves. You can’t always expect that fire fighters or paramedics will be available. Sometimes you will need to rely on yourself.
Through funding from the West Virginia Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management and coordination with Volunteer West Virginia, ReadyWV is a communications campaign and an online tool that helps West Virginians know what to do before, during, and after an emergency.
ReadyWV is the preparedness education and outreach initiative of Volunteer West Virginia's Disaster Services Program. To learn how Volunteer West Virginia engages during disaster response and recovery, see VolWV Disaster Fact Sheet.
