We wanted to take a moment to talk about the winter season and its impacts on our vulnerable populations. As an agency, we talk about personal preparedness a lot. It's important that we take care of ourselves so that we may then go out and take care of others that rely on us.
Firstly, what are our vulnerable populations? Vulnerable populations are any particular section, group, or type of people or animals living in an area that may not be able to fully care for themselves; this includes animals, senior adults, children, and the less fortunate.
Some BIG ways that we can ensure that we are all taken care of this winter:
If you have friends or family that take care of a child, animal, or family member, send this information to them! It could save a life.
The Williamson County Emergency Management Agency also provides up-to-date preparedness and safety information on Twitter and Facebook.
