Are You Prepared For A Disaster?

| September 10, 2012 | 0 Comments

The Snyder County Chapter would like to encourage individuals, businesses and schools to join with us and make not only our families but our neighborhoods safer. The five proactive steps listed are simple and easy to do.

1. Make A Plan: Discuss which disasters can happen where you live. Choose two meeting places for your family –one outside your home and another outside of your neighborhood. Practice your plan with everyone in your family.

2. Build A Kit: Create a disaster emergency kit. Include water, food, first aid kit, medications, flashlight, portable radio, (and extra batteries) clothing, money, pet supplies and information (phone numbers and/or email addresses) for family members to contact. Have enough supplies for three days.

3. Get Trained: Learn CPR and first aid skills.

4. Volunteer: Sign up to become American Red Cross or other local agency volunteer.

5. Give Blood: Every 2 seconds someone needs blood. Give blood today!
