The Lake County Emergency Management Agency and Local Emergency Planning Committee developed the “Ready Lake County” campaign to motivate Lake County residents to take action, make a plan and be self-prepared for any disaster or emergency. Ready Lake County and its website are the one source for all residents to easily access agencies and resources for basic information to create a disaster plan, to build a personal emergency supply kit, to prepare for pet needs, and to identify which agencies are best for their unique emergency needs.

Ready Lake County is supported through partnerships with American Red Cross, local Police and Fire Departments, Lake County General Health District, Laketran, Lifeline 2-1-1, First Energy, Dominion East Ohio, Lubrizol, and United Way of Lake County.
