Governor’s Weekly Message: Empowering Everybody to Prepare for Natural Disasters and Other Emergencies

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 provided by state public health and emergency management agencies.

“Severe weather, natural disasters, and public health emergencies can threaten the safety of our people, homes, and communities,” Governor Markell said. “As Governor, I’ve observed how fortunate we are to have so many exceptional public servants hard at work keeping us safe during rain, wind, and snow events, as well as other emergencies. By preparing now, you will best position yourself and your loved ones to respond quickly and safely should an emergency occur. And that will keep Delaware moving forward.”

Every week, the Governor’s office releases a new Weekly Message in video, audio, and transcript form. The message is available on:
