Task 6: Your Own Hazard

Hey Everyone, Eric from the 30 Days Gang, here with your Day 6 Challenge.

If you look at Ready.Gov, one of the first things they tell ya.. is “Make a Kit, Make a Plan” and while I think these are important steps… I think we often overlook an important first piece…. How can you make a kit or make a plan, if you don’t know what hazards you may have in your area? What risks might you face when it comes to an emergency or disaster?

In past years, we always focused on those natural and human caused disasters or emergencies….those catastrophes.. like we see in the disaster movies. But who had on their disaster Bingo card, a pandemic that would keep us locked in our homes for months? I know I missed the mark on that one… While many of the items I had stocked up on, kept me comfortable in my home, it also made me realize we have many hazards around our homes that we often overlook and don’t think about… from an extension chord that has too many things plugged in, to tripping and fall hazards and even potential poisons within our homes.

DAY 6 Challenge:1-3, or 5 pts    For your Day 6 Challenge, we want you you to go on a hazard hunt… in your home. Share with us what you may have found, and actions you can take to minimize or remove those hazards. Take a pic or video to share with others. No shaming here, and you may help someone else make their homes safer.

Level Up: 5 pts For Today’s level up.. we want you to step outside your home, and look at the neighborhood around you. What risks or potential hazards are within walking distance of your home? For instance, in my neighborhood, there is a small power transfer station within 3 blocks of my home. Share with us and draw a generic map of your neighborhood to share with us your neighborhood hazards!
