To prepare Marrowstone Island residents so that, when disasters arise, our community will have equipped itself with the necessary resources, knowledge, and networks that will enable us to take care of ourselves and others for extended periods of time.
Why this website
The beauty of the tall trees and the natural privacy of being surrounded by water are just two reasons that most of us have chosen to live on Marrowstone Island. But these two facts make us uniquely vulnerable to a major event. Fallen trees could damage our homes, block our roads and take down our power and telephone lines. Being an island could partially or totally isolate us from the peninsula and outside services. We could lose the bridge, the causeway, or most of the boats to a major event. Local, State and Federal aid could be unavailable to us for anywhere from days to a month or more.
Regardless of the source of the emergency, it is prudent that we design individual/family, neighborhood, community and county plans to mitigate, prepare for, respond to and recover from an event.
Please take a few minutes to click on the links in the left sidebar (as they are developed), and consider volunteering to help develop those plans.
Emergency Preparedness can make all the difference. Please join your neighbors and other Islanders in this effort.
