Muhlenberg County Health Department
Community Preparedness & MRC
Emergencies can happen with little to no warning, help your family prepare for when disaster strikes.
Families should work together to build a kit so their family can survive for the first 72 hours following a disaster because it may take a while for help to arrive. This includes basic items such as fresh water, medications, food, and more. See https://www.ready.gov/kit to get started.
Stay safe with weather alerts when you are on the go: https://www.fema.gov/mobile-app .
Across this great nation, volunteers in the Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) donate time and skills to help response agencies prepare and respond to emergency events. The Hopkins-Muhlenberg Medical Reserve Corps is a group of volunteers from a variety of backgrounds that may be called upon to respond to an emergency or disaster event. Call 270-754-3200 to sign up to be an MRC volunteer or register with ReadyOp at http://ky.readyop.com/contact/register/71 .
