Disaster Preparedness Tips
Here is a quick checklist of things you need to consider for your family's
and your personal safety.
Recognize the disasters that could affect your community. Fire,
earthquake, floods, mudslides, hazardous materials spills, are among
those to consider.
Learn proper "Duck, Cover and Hold" techniques in "safe spots",
and teach others.
Mitigate home and workplace hazards such as strapping water
heaters to prevent fires and securing large furniture to studs in
Store supplies. Water is essential! Then consider food, first
aid, warmth and provisions for children, elderly and pets.
Develop a neighborhood roster with out-of-area contacts. This
will help with communications after an event.
Prepare a utilities map of the neighborhood that shows the electricity,
gas and water shutoffs of each house. These maps will allow these to be turned off
by others if a homeowner is not able. Such action could prevent fires from starting and
spreading throughout the neighborhood.
Attend the disaster preparedness classes offered through the
your local public safety agencies or Community Center to gain complete
survival and self-help information. Share this information with your family and neighbors.
