Emergency Preparedness Initiative EPI

GOOD TO KNOW – RESOURCE CENTER

The Emergency Preparedness Initiative is an educational program and motivational campaign encouraging you, your family, and the community at large to prepare for emergencies and disasters.

 

EPI is sponsored by Convocation and facilitated by the Men’s Culture of the Goodenough Community.

Goodenough member Tod Ransdell has gathered a wide variety of support reference materials from sources accessed on the Public Domain of the World Wide Web, to assist you in creating an emergency plan, such as provided in the American Red Cross Disaster Plan Calendar.  

 

We recommend you start by reading the First Things First section.


Learn what hazards can cause disasters where you live. Determine your family’s needs and how you can survive these hazards. Consider special needs populations such as people with disabilities and the elderly in your planning. And finally, our pets play an important part in our lives, so don’t forget about your animal friends.

Quakes and Volcanoes
Earthquakes and volcanoes can strike suddenly, violently and with no warning. Learn how to prepare for these disasters before they happen, and what to do if you are caught in one.

Are You Ready? 


There are three main steps to creating an effective emergency preparation plan.

Step 1: Make A Plan - The plan is a pre-determined set of action steps that you can take during a disastrous event.

Step 2: Build an Emergency Supply Kit- The kit is a collection of food, water and supplies stored in preparation for a possible disaster. You can do this all at once or develop the 3-day kit gradually over time.

 

Step 3: Get Involved - Know the resources around you, including agencies and groups that provide safety training. Be a resource to someone else who may need help preparing. Remember: during a major disaster we will depend on each other.
