Are you prepared to handle emergency outcomes from a severe thunderstorm? We've gathered resources from MI Ready by the Michigan State Police and the National Weather Services so that you can prepare for emergencies before they're imminent. 

The best way to prepare for any emergency is to develop an Emergency Preparedness Kit that has everything you need for survival. The document below provides information on what to include in your Emergency Preparedness Kit, as well as questions to discuss with your family so that everyone is on the same page about how to get through severe weather emergencies.


Do you have a pet? We have recommendations for him or her too. Keep these tips in mind and add these items to your preparedness kit, so both you and your pet can get through a severe weather emergency safely.


The National Weather Service provides resources for becoming a Weather Ready Nation. Individuals can familiarize themselves with these resources and take steps to become a Weather Ready Nation Ambassador. Learn more at
