Winter is  HERE! Winter preparation 

WHY prepare? 

Being prepared can reduce fear, anxiety, and losses that accompany disasters. Communities, families, and individuals should know what to do in the event of a fire and where to seek shelter during a tornado. We should be ready to evacuate our homes and take refuge in public shelters (SAFE neighborhoods will work as a temporary shelter in the event of the earthquake) and know how to care for their basic medical needs (we need to be trained in CERT, HAM Radio and Red Cross).

  • We also can reduce the impact of disasters (flood proofing, elevating a home or moving a home out of harm’s way, and securing items that could shake loose in an earthquake) and sometimes avoid the danger completely. The need to prepare is real.
  • Disasters disrupt hundreds of thousands of lives every year. Each disaster has lasting effects, both to people and property.
  • If a disaster occurs in our community, local government and disaster-relief organizations will try to help us, but we need to be ready as well. Local responders may not be able to reach us immediately, or they may need to focus their efforts elsewhere.
  • We must know how to respond to severe weather or any disaster that could occur in your area—hurricanes, earthquakes, extreme cold, flooding, or terrorism.
  • We should also be ready to be self-sufficient for at least three days. This may mean providing for our own shelter, first aid, food, water, and sanitation. Sanitation is very important. Bad sanitation is the cause of diseases during a disaster. Why Prepare (FEMA) https://www.fema.gov/media-library-data/20130726-1549-20490-4325/why_prepare.pdf
