Being prepared for emergencies is crucial at home, school, work and in your community. Disaster can strike quickly and without warning, forcing you to evacuate or confine you to your neighborhood, workplace, or school.
What would you do if basic utility services were cut off? Local relief workers will eventually arrive on the scene; however, they can't reach everyone right away.
The best way to make you and your family safer is to be prepared before a disaster strikes.
For information on what to do before, during and after a natural or man-made disaster, check out the Ready Illinois website, or DuPage County Emergency Preparedness site.
Localized flooding occurs when large storms drop more precipitation than the storm drainage system can immediately drain away, and/or when storm inlets, culvert inlets, and/or storm sewers are blocked. Learn how to help prevent this by adopting a storm inlet.
The Village of Bloomingdale has developed an Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) to help preserve and protect the maximum number of lives in the event of a major emergency or disaster, minimize injuries, protect property, preserve government operations, maintain and support economic activities essential for the survival, and eventual recovery from the emergency or disaster.
The village installed four Extreme Weather / Tornado sirens in and around the village to alert citizens who may be outdoors when a tornado warning is issued. Lightning sirens are located in all parks throughout the village and are maintained by the Bloomingdale Park District.
Operation Helping Hand is a cooperative public safety program in DuPage County.
