Emergency Prepardeness - Join In!

Last year we were part of the Great Shakeout and will participate again this year.  The big drill is planned for 10:16 am on Oct 16.  Through our participation in that event we’ve joined America’s PrepareAthon! which is a national campaign to increase emergency preparedness and resilience.  It takes a village to prepare for, respond to, and then recover from emergencies and natural disasters.  America’s PrepareAthon!  has four building blocks of preparedness -  be informed, make a plan, build a kit, and get involved.  Their first National Day of Action is April 30 and will revolve around taking actions to prepare for tornadoes, wildfires, floods, and hurricanes.  America’s PrepareAthon! is modeled on the success of The Great ShakeOut earthquake drills, which have moved millions of people to practice what to do during an earthquake and improve preparedness. The Great ShakeOut will continue to be a day of action for earthquake preparedness associated with America’s PrepareAthon!
