Community Preparedness Month kicks off
As wildfires rage throughout Northern California, local residents are encouraged to be emergency and disaster ready.
September is observed by the County of Santa Clara as Community Preparedness Month, when emergency officials encourage community members to take an active role in emergency planning by being prepared for the unexpected.
“Emergency preparedness and disaster readiness require active participation from the whole community including residents, government, law enforcement, fire and EMS to respond to emergencies and rebuild after disaster strikes,” said Director of Emergency Management Dana Reed. “When community members are prepared, they are better positioned to help those around them. There are simple steps we can all take now that can save someone’s life, including our own, one day.”
This year, Community Preparedness Month will focus on how to protect loved ones by taking the four steps of emergency preparedness:
• Sign up for AlertSCC at AlertSCC.org. AlertSCC is free to sign up. Alerts are sent directly on mobile devices, landlines and/or email.
• Make a plan. Always map out several routes with safe locations to meet up in case you become separated. Talk to your family about how you will receive information and stay connected.
• Build an emergency supply kit. Pack a “go bag”—an emergency supply kit for when you are required to evacuate. Build a stay kit—an emergency supply kit for when you are required to stay home.
• Help family, friends and neighbors. Host a neighborhood emergency planning meeting and discuss evacuation routes, identify which neighbors may need additional support during an emergency or disaster, and create a contact list of local services and resources to share with the community.
