Top Ten Things You Can Do Now to Prepare your Community Organization
- Like on the airplane: Put your oxygen mask on first! What is your personal preparation plan? Do you have a list of what you should have? https://www.ready.gov/build-a-kit
- Board and Staff Meeting Agenda under “New Business”: Disaster planning. Download an example Disaster Planning Process www.standardsforexcellenceinstitute.org
- Talk about what role your community program may need to play in the disaster.
- Join RV Recovers now: www.Roguevalley.recovers.org
- Assess your building. If it is built with unreinforced masonry, have a qualified engineer give you an assessment.
- What can fall over in your building? Fasten what you can to the walls.
- Can your staff get home or get to work or will downed bridges or overpasses stop traffic? Have a pair of walking shoes in the office or in your car.
- Are there emergency supplies in your office?
