Emergency Preparedness Resources

Emergency Preparedness Guide

Rowlett's Public Safety staff, in partnership with the Rowlett Citizen Corps Council, has produced the City of Rowlett Emergency Preparedness Guide (PDF)as a resource for everyone in our community.

This comprehensive resource is designed to help the citizens of Rowlett learn how to protect themselves and their families against all types of hazards and will assist in the development of readiness initiatives for individuals, families and businesses.

Rowlett's emergency plan is only as strong as the individual plans developed throughout our community. Being prepared can reduce fear, anxiety, and losses that accompany disasters. Be ready, Make a Plan, Build a Kit and Stay Informed.
