|Being prepared for disasters and emergencies can seem like a big job. Many people don't know where to start, so they never start at all. With Do 1 Thing you can take small steps that make a big difference in an emergency.|
Unfortunately, I've been so focused on my Air National Guard responsibilities over the summer that I've neglected this blog. This post will catch us up on all the outstanding monthly tips from Do1Thing.Com. I promise to post much more frequently going forward!
- July: Family Communication Plan
- Make sure you have multiple ways to communicate with your family and friends. Let your family know your plans for staying in touch during an event. See my previous post on this topic.
- August: Get Involved
- Connect with your neighbors and look to volunteer in your community.
- September: Be Informed
- Be aware of upcoming emergencies and know how to gather information during an event.
- October: Power
- How to better prepare for power loss and how to safely deal with power loss when it occurs.
Be sure to visit all the monthly Do 1 Thing topic pages for fact sheets, videos and additional resources on ensuring your family gets the correct emergency information.
