Residents of The Woodlands are encouraged to develop emergency preparedness plans for their families and neighborhoods. The Neighborhood Services Department, along with The Woodlands Fire Department, can assist residents with these plans through its Get Ready - The Woodlands program, which provides information on how to prepare for both natural and man-made emergencies.
In addition to basic emergency preparedness steps outlined by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security on the Ready.gov Web site, Neighborhood Services provides information that pertains specifically to The Woodlands, including how to obtain information on local services and ways neighbors can work together before and after an emergency.
