  • 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.

    FACT SHEET: TERRORISM

    ?   Terrorists look for visible targets such as international airports, large cities, major international events, resorts, and high-profile landmarks. Terrorist weapons include explosives, kidnappings, hijackings, arson, and shootings.

    ?   Be alert and aware of the surrounding area. The very nature of terrorism suggests that there may be little or no warning.

    ?   Take precautions when traveling. Be aware of conspicuous or unusual behavior. Do not accept packages from strangers. Do not leave luggage unattended.

    ?   Learn where emergency exits are located. Think ahead about how to evacuate a building, subway or congested public area in a hurry. Learn where staircases are located.

    ?   Notice your immediate surroundings. Be aware of heavy or breakable objects that could move, fall or break in an explosion.
