CERT! NEIGHBORS HELPING NEIGHBORS!

Disasters strike with little or no warning. Following a major disaster, local emergency responders will be completely overwhelmed. You need to be prepared to survive unaided for the first 3 days.
You have a choice, be part of the solution or part of the problem. Are you ready?
Getting started: Meet with your family. Discuss the types of disasters that could occur.

  • Explain how to prepare and respond.
  • Discuss what to do if advised to evacuate.
  • Practice what you have discussed.

Plan how your family will stay in contact. If separated by disaster:
1. Pick two meeting places:
A) A location a safe distance from your home in case of fire.
B) A place outside your neighborhood in case you can’t return home.
2. Choose an out-of state friend as a “check-in contact” for everyone to call.
