Are YOU Ready For A Disaster PDF Print E-mail

Providers, as you know, the hurricane season is well upon us.  ODEMSA joins you in your concern for the recent victims in TX, and those that are in current hurricane paths.  We know providers, from our region and throughout Virginia, are participating in hurricane missions at multiple disaster locations.  We want to take a moment to remind you to make sure you, and your family, are prepared for any type of disaster.  You CAN NOT help others when you, yourself, are in need.  Your mind CAN NOT focus on your missions when it's worried about family, pets and your home.  We plead you GET A KIT, MAKE A PLAN and STAY INFORMED.   Visit for more information and well prepared checklists.  ODEMSA staff wish well-being to all our providers and their families.  Please take a moment, to take recommended precautions, to assure your safety.
