Task 28: What Are YOU Missing?

Emergency Preparedness is a never-ending activity. Once you have your basic needs taken care of, you will often find yourself thinking of additional items to add to your supply kit, a different way of doing something, or new information to share with others. 

DAY 28 Challenge:1-3, or 5 pts    Today, we want you to make your own personal “to do” list for tasks and items you still have left to complete to feel fully prepared for any emergency or crisis situation. Try to identify at least 3 more things you could and should do to enhance your personal preparedness. Consider the following areas: 

  • Family Emergency Plan 
  • Emergency Preparedness Kit 
  • For Yourself, Loved Ones and Pets 
  • For Your Vehicles 
  • For Your Office

Evaluate How You Stay Informed:

  • Access to TV & Radio (that is not reliant on electrical power) 
  • Telephones (make sure cell phones are registered to receive emergency alerts)
  • Text Messaging 
  • Social Media 
  • NOAA Weather Radios 

Exercise, Exercise, Exercise! (and we don’t mean on the treadmill)

  • Conduct drills & exercises with your family or at work(fire alarm, duck & cover, evacuation & relocation)
  • Schedule a maintenance routine for how often you update your preparedness & stored items
  • Put those skills to the test! Test your skills by volunteering to make a difference in your local community.
