  • Guide G-109: Emergency Preparedness: Sheltering at Home
    It’s easy to think that disasters won’t happen in New Mexico. However, New Mexico is at risk for drought, wildfires, floods, flash floods, high winds, landslides, severe winter storms, severe thunderstorms, hail storms, tornadoes, and earthquakes. The more prepared you are before a disaster occurs, the less impact it will have on your life.
  • Avoid COVID-19 SCAMS
