Information you need to prepare for a disaster

Weather related death statistics

Types of Emnergencies: A disaster can take many shapes: An unexpected tornado, plane crash, conflagrant fires and hurricanes. Weather related death statistics have been compiled by the Office of Services and the National Climatic Data Center from information contained in Storm Data.

CERT member activation: Following a disaster CERT members assemble in pre-assigned groups of two to circulate the community by zones. They activate during daylight hours following a disaster, a command post established and communications to local first responders through the Manatee County Emergency Operations Center. Their objectives are to look for property damage, power line damages, flooding and physical injuries. In the event of an evacuation due to hurricane preparedness CERT members will return when able to do so. They will be the first responders allowed to return to the community following an evacuation. Become a CERT member by filing a Membership Application. Send the aplication to the address at the top of this page.
