Preparing For Disasters

Disasters often strike quickly and without warning. They are frightening for adults, and can be traumatic for children, especially if they don't know what to do.  During a disaster, your family may have to leave your home and depart from your daily routine. We all may become anxious, confused, or frightened. The Lee County Sheriff's Office feels that it's important to provide guidance that will help reduce fears.

As humans, we depend on daily routines. We wake up, eat breakfast, go to work, school, etc. When emergencies or disasters interrupt our routine, many of us may become anxious.
