Disaster Preparedness Week

September is National Preparedness Month (NPM) which serves as a reminder that we all must take action to prepare, now and throughout the year, for the types of emergencies that could affect us where we live, work and visit. This year’s theme is, “Disasters Happen. Prepare Now. Learn How.” There are a number of ways you can prepare for a natural disaster. Some examples are:

  • Learn where your utility shut-off’s are in your home and workplace.
  • Learn a life-saving skill like CPR or First Aid.
  • Keep lists of all medications, medical conditions, allergies, etc. for all family members in a safe location (File of Life cards are available for listing these at our Administration Building).
  • Practice Fire and Earthquake drills regularly, and have an escape plan in place that includes multiple exit options.

For more info on preparedness, visit FEMA’s disaster preparedness website at www.ready.gov.

Openings are available for our free CPR class on Monday, October 8th, from 6:00 - 8:00 PM. To register, call the Administration Office at 831-685-6690. Space is limited, so early registration is highly recommended. More information on our Bystander CPR program can be found on our CPR Page.
