Ready America: Prepare. Plan. Stay Informed

September 9, 2010 by
Filed under: Translation 

September is National Preparedness Month of 2010! We believe that it is a great time to plan and prepare for those unknown disasters before they occur, as you and your family may need to survive on your own for some time after an emergency. This is why Transl8 Language Solutions became a NPM 2010 Coalition Member to rise the awareness and help the community stay prepared.

The U.S. government continues it’s Ready Campaign stressing the importance of knowing about emergencies and their appropriate responses and about working with your communities to improve preparedness. Information on the Ready Campaign website includes help for families, businesses, and special considerations for children and pets.

Recommended Items to Include in your Basic Emergency Supply Kit (by Ready America):

  • 1 gallon of water per person per day for 3 days
  • Minimum 3 Day Supply of Non-Perishable Food
  • Battery-powered or hand crank radio and a NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert and extra batteries for both
  • Flashlight and extra batteries
  • First aid kit
  • Whistle to signal for help
  • Dust mask to help filter contaminated air and plastic sheeting and duct tape to shelter-in-place
  • Moist towelettes, garbage bags and plastic ties for personal sanitation
  • Wrench or pliers to turn off utilities
  • Hand crank Can opener for food (if kit contains canned food)
  • Local maps
  • Cell phone with chargers, inverter or solar charger

With tornadoes hitting Texas for the last few days, it makes even more sense to revisit this important subject to make sure that your family and your business is safe and ready for unexpected!
