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.
