Natural Disasters

Floods are one of the most common federally-declared disasters that impact Naperville. The flood of 2013 is an excellent reminder that a natural disaster can create significant hazards in our community. A little bit of planning can help protect you and your loved ones.

Emergency Preparedness

The City of Naperville has spent considerable time and resources on planning, training and equipping first responders, staff and volunteers to manage emergencies of all types, including incidents of terrorism.

While the City has taken these special measures, it is the responsibility of each citizen to take informed steps to prepare their homes, businesses and families to cope with any disaster to the best of their ability.

How ready are we?

According to the U.S. Census Bureau,

only 33%
of U.S. residents have a contingency communication plan in place with their families in case of disruption to cell phone service.
