Do One Thing!

Do 1 Thing seeks to ensure that everyone has access to information about risk and vulnerability, allowing them to make informed decisions; and access to resources that can help them become better disaster decision makers.

The focus of Do1Thing for this month (June) is: WORK, SCHOOL, & COMMUNITY

The goal is to make sure the people who count on you are prepared for a disaster.

Disasters can happen at any time. If you are away from home do you know where to find safe shelter locations? Do you know what the emergency procedures are for your child’s school or for your workplace? Will people who count on you know what to do if you can’t reach them? Know how to make sure you and your loved ones are safe in a disaster, no matter where you are. The choices of things to do for this month are:

  • Make sure emergency procedures are in place for your workplace or school.
  • Give emergency kits to people who count on you (college students, elderly parents, etc.)
  • Know how others in your community will respond in a disaster

More information is available at the church or at http://do1thing.com

Stay tuned for more information about these activities that will help us as individuals and families, as well as our congregation and the Waverly community.
