FEMA Preparedness and Resilience Information - It's Not Luck!


Don't rely on luck when it comes to being prepared for emergencies!

This St. Patrick’s Day ensure that you and your family are ready for any emergency. Remember to:

  • Know your risk for the area where you live and work.

  • Make a plan to lessen the impact of those risks.

  • Build a kit to be ready for disasters and emergencies.

  • Don’t leave disaster preparedness to chance, especially during springtime. Spring weather can be unpredictable and can cause severe weather conditions anytime, in any part of the country. This can include thunderstorms, including damaging winds, tornadoes, large hail, flooding and flash flooding, and winter storms associated with freezing rain, sleet, snow and strong winds. The preparedness steps will help keep you safe – your go-kit and emergency plan may just be your lucky charms!


Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, you may not be able to participate in traditional St. Patrick’s Day activities or parades. According to the CDC, the safest way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this year is to gather virtually, with people who live with you, or outside and at least 6 feet apart from others.
