You can make a difference in how well your family and your community prepare for the many hazards that surround us each day. Personal preparedness is the key in keeping your family, and your community, safe during emergencies and disasters.

This can be achieved by maximizing awareness and encouraging participation in disaster preparednessactivities to affect change at the community level.

Our nation’s first responders do an incredible job keeping us safe, but they cannot do it along. We all must embrace our personal responsibility to be prepared and contribute to the safety and security of our communities.​

If you are a member of an organization desiring a preparation program, please contact the Office of Emergency Management.

Kane County has instituted the CodeRED® Emergency Telephone Notification System. CodeRED® is an ultra high-speed telephone communications service for emergency notifications. This system allows County officials to telephone targeted areas of a municipality or the entire County in case an emergency situation requires immediate action such as a boil-water notice, missing child or evacuation notices.​

If you have an unlisted telephone number or want to receive notifications via your cellular telephone click on the logo above and you can enter that telephone number into the database.​
