Steuben Co Issues Statement About Weather Emergencies

While flash floods and snowstorms may be somewhat regular events in Steuben, that doesn’t mean preparation should be taken for granted, he said.  Marshall urged county residents to participate, with their children, in the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s National Preparedness Month with its theme of “Lasting Legacy.”  “Children are the future and an important part of building a countywide culture of preparedness,” he said.  “Prepare your kids for disasters and emergencies. Take time to make a plan and have conversations about preparedness. Help them know how to stay safe and navigate potentially scary situations.”  FEMA offers several “Lasting Legacy” online resources for talking with children and teens such as Ready.gov/September and Ready.gov. A website for Spanish speakers, Listo.gov, was a popular part
of FEMA’s 2021 campaign to reach Spanish speakers and remains as an important online resource.
Local alerts and warnings from the National Weather Service for up to five locations nationwide are on FEMA’s
app, located on Google Play Store and the Apple App Store.
Steuben’s early warning app, Ready Steuben, also is available through the Google Play and the Apple App stores.
Steuben residents also may sign up for CodeRED notifications at https://public.coderedweb.com/CNE/en-

More information on “Lasting Legacy” will be posted each Sunday throughout September
