Wilmington, DE – In his weekly message, Governor Markell encourages all Delawareans to take time now to prepare for natural disasters and other emergency situations, and reviews new resources available to assist them through the interactive website www.PrepareDE.org provided by state public health and emergency management agencies.

They’re law enforcement and other first responders, emergency management staff, transportation workers, public health workers, and other social service providers across Delaware, who are well-prepared to serve us during times of need.
