  • National Preparedness Month Week 3

    Week 3: September 17 - 23

    Practice and Build Out Your Plans

    During this third week of National Preparedness Month, learn skills! First aid is the initial care for an illness or injury. It is often performed by non-expert, but trained or informed personnel to a sick or injured person until definitive medical treatment can be accessed. Certain minor injuries may not require further medical care past the first aid intervention. First Aid generally consists of a series of simple, and in some cases, potentially life-saving techniques that an individual can be trained to perform with minimal equipment. We, of course, recommend you schedule a live CPR & First Aid course for your group, at your location – but also, here’s a great solution for everyone to have handy – ON SALE BUY ONE GET ONE!

    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… ?

  • 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.

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.

  • Outside - whether you like it or not!

    Wilderness and Outdoor Preparedness is a theme for hikers, campers, and trekkers - but should be a concern for everyone.

    Disasters often make outdoor survival needs an immediate concern for the most timid home bodies, not just the adventurous.

    Coast2CactusA line from the great guide "Coast to Cactus the Canyoneer Trail Guide to San Diego County" captures this well:

    Much of maximizing your outdoor experience can be summarized in one word and done before leaving home—preparation.

  • 3 Ways to Practice 'National Preparedness Month' All Year

    September was National Preparedness Month, and is a great reminder that being prepared for emergency situations or dangerous circumstances is incredibly important. After all, flash floods are the No. 1 cause of deaths associated with thunderstorms each year, hail causes more than $1 billion in crop and property damage, tornadoes lead to roughly 60-65 fatalities and lightning is the cause of 55-60 deaths annually, the National Weather Service reports. So taking the sentiment of National Preparedness Month, why not ensure that you and your family is safe all year round? Here are a few ways to get you prepared.

    Pack an emergency kit

    Packing a comprehensive emergency kit could be the crucial element that keeps you and your family safe in emergency situations. The kit should consist of three main things: food, water and important documents. Try to ensure that you have enough food for each person to last three days. It's better if you pick something with a long shelf life that doesn't require cooking and is easily stored like canned food, nuts and dried fruit.

    Water is something you can almost never have enough of, therefore, be generous with the amount that you pack. Around 1 gallon per person should be enough, as you never know what outdoor situations you'll have to endure that will quench your thirst.

    Important documents are sometimes forgotten during the rush and anxiety of emergencies, so setting aside insurance details and appropriate identification is handy. You never know what recovery procedures you may have to go through and what information you will need.

    No matter what is in your emergency kit, try and pack it in plastic containers rather than in storage materials that can break or decompose.

    Pick a meeting place and talk through a plan

    You and your family may be split up during an emergency, therefore figuring out where to meet and how to communicate is very important. Try and pick two meeting places: one near the house in case of a situation at home and one outside the neighborhood. Meeting places should be sheltered, strong and easily found. In the case of an outdoor emergency, ensure your family is equipped with the necessary outdoor gear and is aware of safe practices they can use when they head to the meeting place.

    Furthermore, talk with your loved ones about how you will communicate. Discuss whether you will speak over social media, text message or back plans in case none of these work. A great thing to note is to keep an ear out for the radio in emergencies so that all family members can meet at the closest emergency shelter.

    Prepare your home

    In outdoor emergencies, preparing your home to minimize risk can make a big difference. Try moving outdoor furniture to higher ground levels in case of a flood and see if it can be secured in case of a hurricane. Other things to consider at home are having enough materials in case of a power outage, having an emergency access to your home and securing any entrances such as doors and windows.

    National Preparedness Month serves as a great message of promoting planning to keep safe in emergency situations. Celebrate this great month all year long by following some of these steps to stay well prepared.
