How You Can Prepare

How You Can Prepare

Our agency is here to make sure you are as prepared as you possibly can be for potential disasters and other emergencies. These events can strike suddenly, at any time and anywhere. There are actions everyone can take that can help make a difference.

Preparation Checklist:

  1. Know what emergencies or disasters are most likely to occur in your community.
  2. Have a family disaster plan and have practice it.
  3. Have an 72 hour emergency preparedness kit.
  4. Train at least one member of your household in first aid and CPR/AED.
  5. Volunteer and take action to help your community prepare.
  6. Prepare your children on how to cope and use 911.


MITIGATION = the action of reducing the severity, seriousness, or painfulness of something

Our agency is continually working on ways to minimize risk and be prepared as a community.

Remember your role is important too!

Tips for Donating and Volunteering Responsibly:

  • Cash is the most efficient method of donating - cash offers voluntary agencies the most flexibility in obtaining the most-needed resources.
  • Donate through a trusted organization - please ensure your donations are getting to the people in need through trusted groups such as Red Cross, Salvation Army and St. John Ambulance. Learn more about these non-government organizations (NGO) partners.
  • Affiliate yourself with an existing non-profit organization before coming to a disaster area - immediately following a disaster a community can become easily overwhelmed by the amount of generous people who want to help. Working with an organization ensures you are properly grouped, trained, and able to respond in the most effective way.
  • Be safe - do not self deploy until a need has been identified. Once you have safely arrived checkin and ensure you wear and work safely.
  • Be patient - recovery is a long process and will last much longer than the media attention. There will be  volunteer needs for weeks, often months after the disaster - especially when the community enters the long-term recovery period. Take time to rest and remember we are all working towards making things better.

Donating Goods

  • Cash is the most needed and efficient way to help those impacted by disaster.
  • Confirm what is needed BEFORE dropping off any goods.
  • If specific goods are needed they will be requested.
  • Unsolicited goods may distract agencies from providing necessary services to sort, package, transport, warehouse, and distribute items and may not meet the needs of survivors.
