20 Steps to Ready

In today’s society, many people take for granted basic needs such as water, food, shelter, and security. We assume these necessities will always be readily accessible to us, but in the face of a large-scale disaster, that might not be the case.

During emergencies, the leading cause of death is lack of proper and timely medical care. In the event of a large scale disaster, we will ask our employees to respond with us in caring for our community. It is important to us that our employees’ needs and those of their families and pets are met in order for them to report here, if needed.

FEMA reminds us to be able to self-rescue and self- supply for at least 72 hours, but clearly emergencies can last much longer than that. Remember that you are the tip of the spear for providing such care to your family and community in time of need. You need to be able to take care of yourselves and each other for extended periods of time, and we will show you how.
