HRPDC Encourages Everyone to Resolve to Be Ready in 2012

 


The New Year is a perfect time to Resolve to be Ready and the Hampton Roads Planning District Commission (HRPDC) is proud to be promoting emergency preparedness for 2012. Sponsored by the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Ready Campaign, Resolve to be Ready is a nationwide effort designed to increase awareness as well as encourage individuals, families, businesses, and communities to take action and prepare for emergencies in the New Year. The HRPDC and the Ready Campaign would like to encourage you to make an emergency preparedness resolution to take three important steps.

  • Be informed. Know the hazards and risks in your area.
  • Make a family emergency plan, so you know how you would communicate with and find your loved ones if a disaster hit.
  • Build an emergency supply kit – both at home and in the car – that includes water, food and first aid supplies to help you survive if you lose power or get stranded in your car. This is especially important for dealing with icy roads and snowstorms this winter.
