FLEET & FAMILY SUPPORT CENTERS OF HAMPTON ROADS S GNAL JUL • AUG • SEP 2022 Emergency Preparedness Emergencies and disasters can come in many forms and strike at any time. We frequently think of emergency preparedness in terms of natural disasters with the biggest focus in the Hampton Roads area being hurricane season, June 1 through November 30. The truth is that emergencies and disasters take many shapes and forms: natural, man-made, diseases, terrorism and active-shooter, just to name a few. Preparedness should be a year-round activity as emergencies can happen with little or no warning. Proper planning and advanced action can help decrease stress during an emergency.  BE INFORMED: Assess the types of disasters your area is more likely to experience. Know various local and national resources for obtaining accurate information. Register with the Wide Area Alert Network (WAAN) for your area. Be familiar with government websites such as Ready.Navy.mil, Ready.gov, FEMA.gov, NOAA.gov, and CDC.gov. Consider loading related apps to your phone or computer for ready access.  MAKE A PLAN: Have an advanced discussion with all family members regarding where to meet up if not together when the emergency happens, including contact information for everyone. Have a written emergency plan detailing what to do, where to go, and what to take. Give each family member a written communication plan with instructions on who to call and how to communicate critical information. Provide extended family and friends with your communications plan information.  BUILD A KIT: The rule of thumb is to have enough supplies for every family member for at least three to five days. Basic items to have in your kit include water, food and first-aid supplies. Include copies of important documents (hard copies or electronic) such as birth certificates, marriage certificates, insurance information, prescriptions, health information, etc. Remember to plan for your pets, as well, if applicable.  PREPARE KIDS: Include your children as much as appropriate in emergency and disaster preparedness. This will help ease their fears in the event of an emergency and provide them with a sense of ownership in the process. Discuss types of emergencies that can happen. Include them in the planning and run practice drills. Have them provide input on what should be in the emergency kit – maybe a favorite stuffed animal or comfort item. The Ready.Navy.mil and Ready.gov websites both have information and activities on emergency preparedness for kids. Preparation, planning, and practice can make all the difference when a disaster or emergency strikes. Contact your local Fleet and Family Support Center to attend a Ready Navy class or schedule Ready Navy training for your Command or Family Readiness Group. For additional preparedness information, check out www.ready.navy.mil and www.ready.gov.
