June - Unique Family Needs - Be Prepared for Disasters and Emergencies

Being prepared for disasters and emergencies can seem like a big job. Not knowing where to start prevents us from starting at all…do1thing is a 12 month program that makes it easy for you to prepare yourself, your family and community for emergencies or disasters. Join SOCIL monthly as we do1thing to prepare:

JUNE - The Goal: Be aware of and prepare for your family’s unique needs.

Choose one of the following things to do this month to become better prepared:

  • Talk with family members to identify your household’s unique needs.
  • Make a plan to make sure pets are taken care of in a disaster.
  • If you or someone in your household has a disability, create an evacuation plan that works for them.
