National Preparedness Month

Release date: 9/13/2018

Week 2 – Learn Life Saving Skills

Our disaster readiness recommendations for the second week of National Preparedness Month take on a special significance with the news about the life-threatening Hurricane Florence bearing down on our Southern neighbors in the Carolinas.   We urge all residents to be prepared for whatever emergency may strike by following these simple rules. 

You Are the Help Until Help Arrives

Life-threatening emergencies can happen fast and emergency responders aren’t always nearby.  You may be able to save a life by taking simple actions immediately.  Consider taking a First Aid and/or CPR/AED course.  Learn and share 5 simple skills that may save a life:

  • Call 9-1-1
  • Stay Safe
  • Stop the Bleeding
  • Position the Injured
  • Provide Comfort

Other simple steps that we encourage you to take include:

  • Install smoke, carbon monoxide, and natural gas alarms in your home and test them monthly.
  • Learn how to turn off the gas in your home.
  • Have chimneys and vents cleaned and inspected by a qualified professional at least once a year to prevent home fires.
  • Know two ways out of your home in the event of a fire and practice evacuation plans.
