  • Prepare Now. Today.

    Emergency-SurvivalPrepare yourself, your business, and your family now. Today.

    The National Department of Homeland Security has repeatedly stressed the need for citizen preparedness and awareness about the threats America faces and the importance of emergency planning. It’s here, it’s real and it can happen at any moment. Natural disasters such as earth quakes, floods and fires can also challenge our readiness and ability to survive. Being equipped with an Emergency Survival kit containing food, water, heat packs and other survival gear along with first aid supplies can make the difference… the difference between survival, or… ? See our Solutions for your Preparedness.

  • 72 Hours of Supplies

    Do you have emergency supplies to last your family at least 72 hours in the event of an emergency?

    After a disaster or emergency, local officials and relief workers are not always able to reach everyone immediately. An emergency situation may impact the ability of emergency responders to reach you and your loved ones. It is a good idea to plan for the loss of basic services, such as electricity, gas, water, sewage treatment, and telephones for at least 72-hours at minimum. Having non-perishable food, water, and medical supplies for several days is even better. Your supply kit should contain certain items to help you manage during these outages. The items listed below are a great starting point. You may also need to consider medications and food for pets.

    Ready.gov recommends a basic emergency supply kit with the following items:

    Build a kit. Include enough food, water and medical supplies for your needs in your emergency kit to last for at least 72 hours. Ready.gov/myplan. Brought to you by the Ad Council and Ready.

    Water, one gallon of water per person per day for at least three days, for drinking and sanitation.
    Food, at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food (food that does not need refrigeration).
    • Battery-powered or hand-crank radio and a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Weather Radio with tone alert and extra batteries for both.
    Flashlight and extra batteries.
    First aid kit.
    Whistle to signal for help.
    Dust mask to help filter contaminated air and plastic sheeting and duct tape to shelter-in-place.
    Moist towelettes, garbage bags, and plastic ties for personal sanitation.
    Emergency Tools + Wrench or pliers to turn off utilities.
    • Manual can opener for food.
    • Local maps.
    • Cell phone with chargers, inverter, or solar charger.

    Once you build or update your emergency kit, take a moment and register your preparedness activity on www.ready.gov/prepare.

  • 2017 Preparedness Summit

    PrepSummit-2017
    As public health professionals looks towards the next two decades, one thing is certain, the world will not look the same as it does today. Our changing environment, technological innovation and increasing population density in urban areas are just some of the driving forces that will test our ability to take actions to prepare, respond, and recovery from disasters. The focus of the 2017 Preparedness Summit is to explore the factors driving change in our world, analyze how they will impact the future of public health preparedness, and identify opportunities we have today to drive action toward meeting our future needs.

    shop-preparedness-wide

    The goal of the Preparedness Summit is to provide a venue where participants are exposed to current information, research findings, and practical tools to enhance the participants’ capabilities to plan and prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters and other public health emergencies.

  • Tornadoes

    Tornadoes can strike anywhere in the United States with little or no warning and are capable of causing significant loss of life and billions of dollars in damage. Tornadoes are one of nature’s most violent storms. They generate from powerful thunderstorms and cause overwhelming tornadodestruction in minutes. During violent weather, stay tuned to a local television or radio station for tornado reports. Tornadoes can develop during severe thunderstorms and hurricanes. Most injuries and fatalities from tornadoes are caused by being struck or cut by falling or wind-borne debris. When a tornado threatens, your goal is to go to the safest place for protection before the tornado hits and to take additional measures for personal cover. If a storm shelter or basement is not available, plan to find shelter under heavy furniture or mattresses near an inside wall of your house on the ground floor. Provide animals in your household with a safe area and keep them confined. Tornado Preparedness includes all the standard emergency kit items (food, water, shelter, warmth, etc.) Additionally, for Tornadoes, add monitoring weather reports provided by your local media - Many communities have text or email alerting systems for emergency notifications. To find out what alerts are available in your area, do an Internet search with your town, city, or county name and the word “alerts.” Consider buying a NOAA Weather Radio (NWR) All Hazards receiver, which receives broadcast alerts directly from the NWS. Remember - just as with Hurricanes, likelihood of land and mobile communication (as well as internet) services being unavailable is extremely high, so do not count on cell phones, TV, or your computer - have other communication devices available and ready to use. Think “whistles”. “walkie talkies”, “bull horn”, too – while it is important to listen to reports and directives, you may need to signal out to rescuers as well.

  • Man-Made Disasters

    RadiationMankind – always in such a hurry to destroy ourselves. War is always a concern, radiation from the ever-present concerns about nuclear holocaust, but what about combination natural/unnatural disasters like the earthquake and tsunami that resulted in the Fukushima nuclear accident (and resultant radiation poisoning scare) in 2011? Some Man-made disasters, such as Global Warming are not sudden, and we as a species have time to plan and adjust, others are more sudden, but with some warning (wildfires, flooding due to dam failure) and then there are the sudden ones like plane crashes, train derailments, mine and pipeline explosions, and structural collapses. How does one prepare for these? Well, there are some things people acquire like potassium Iodide pills and hazmat suits when they are truly afraid of contamination, but being generally “prepared” is usually the most reasonable thing to do – just make sure your home, work, school, car, and family are ready to evacuate if necessary, or shelter in place with food, water, warmth, shelter and communication if need be.

    Even if you try to create a safe place for them, pets left behind during a disaster are likely to be injured, lost, or worse. It is your responsibility as a pet owner to find out what type of shelters and assistance are available in your area to accommodate pets and to include pets in your disaster plan to keep them safe during an emergency.

  • Neighborhood READY

    Is your neighborhood ready? One form of neighborhood readiness is participation in CERT, but along the lines of this year's National Preparedness Month Theme (“Don’t Wait. Communicate. Make Your Emergency Plan Today.”) we'd like to suggest a more simple with of preparing with family and neighbors.

    Don't Wait. Communicate. Make a family emergency plan today. Share the Plan with Neighbors, too! Don't Wait. Communicate. Make a family emergency plan today. Share the Plan with Neighbors, too!

    After you have planned and supplied for your Family Preparedness, share the plans with your neighbors... plan a dinner or cookout to share plans with one another - they may have some great ideas you have missed and vice-versa - moreover, share your communication information... perhaps you can reach one another in an emergency when you can't reach your own family ... this is a great way to get updates on the safety and well being of those you cannot reach.

    SERVE.gov has some great ideas Planning with Neighbors  in their Community Preparedness Toolkit, as well.


    NPM_NeighborsPlan with neighbors to help each other and share resources.

    Almost half of Americans expect to rely a great deal on their neighbors after a disaster. Start the conversation now with these Neighbor Helping Neighbor strategies.
