Home Fire Drills

Drills aren’t just for your toolbox. Practice emergency drills with your family at least twice a year! For example, in a home fire you may have less than two minutes to get out. So during a fire drill, have two ways to exit your house, pick a safe meeting spot, and get there in under two minutes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DIdCz8nP3hc&t=30s

Include your child's favorite stuffed animals, board games, books or music in their emergency kit to help comfort them in a disaster. During and after a disaster, children and teens might be feeling frightened, confused and insecure. Their responses can be quite varied. It's important to not only recognize these reactions, but also help children cope with their emotions.

Some ways you can help children cope with the aftermath of a disaster include:
• Encourage dialogue and answer questions
• Limit media exposure
• Make time for them and find support
• Keep to a routine

Preparing Makes Sense for Older Americans

Seniors have unique needs, and these needs must be considered when building your emergency kit. If you are an older adult, make sure you have an extra key to your home, know where you keep your emergency supplies and how to use lifesaving equipment or administer medicine. If you undergo routine treatments administered by a clinic or hospital, ask about their emergency plans and work with them to identify back-up service providers.

Check out this video to view more tips on how older adults can prepare for disasters. https://bit.ly/3zKFnO0

09/08/2021

Your pets are an important member of your family, so they must be included in your family’s emergency kit. Just as you do with your family’s emergency supply kit, think first about the basics for survival, such as food and water. Have two kits, one larger kit if you are sheltering in place and one lightweight version for if you need to evacuate. Review your kits regularly to ensure that their contents, especially foods and medicines, are fresh. https://www.ready.gov/pets

Some items you may want to include in an emergency kit for your pet include:

• Food
• Water
• Medicine - Keep an extra supply of the medicine your pet takes on a regular basis in a waterproof container.
• First aid kit - Talk to your veterinarian about what is most appropriate for your pet’s emergency medical needs.
• Collar with ID tag and a harness or leash - Include a backup leash, collar and ID tag. Have copies of your pet’s registration information and other relevant documents in a waterproof container and available electronically.
• Traveling bag, crate or sturdy carrier
• Grooming items - Pet shampoo, conditioner and other items, in case your pet needs some cleaning up.
• Sanitation needs - Include pet litter and litter box (if appropriate), newspapers, paper towels, plastic trash bags and household chlorine bleach to provide for your pet’s sanitation needs.
• A picture of you and your pet together - If you become separated from your pet during an emergency, a picture of you and your pet together will help you document ownership and allow others to assist you in identifying your pet.
• Familiar items - Put favorite toys, treats or bedding in your kit. Familiar items can help reduce stress for your pet.

When building your emergency kit, it can be easy to forget certain things, which can mean trouble down the road. One type of item that is often forgotten is prescription medications! You need all of the items you must use daily in your emergency kit, and that includes an extra supply of medication. Don’t forget to include medication for at least three days in your emergency supplies!

Food for Thought from a Plano Resident . ( I heard from high authorities on TV that the control of this virus was up to us, the community). So here it is, I am the community and here is my plan. I hope my local authorities are listening too. How to help the ill and the economy at the same time . By Yolanda Orta-Swope. It might be important for a serious ( massive and immediate ) effort to identify those who already have immunity against this virus . That would mean a serious, organized, well funded , prioritized, emergency plan to measure the antibodies (defenses) in the blood of those who already had the disease and among the general population ( because many have had the illness without symptoms and probably have good defenses). This plan serves 2 important and crucial purposes : 1-) Those with immunity can go back to work right now. As more recover from the virus, more will go back and join the work force now ( immediately) with no risk to anybody . ( instead of keeping all of us locked up for months ). This is the quickest and safest way I can think of to recuperate the economy quickly. 2-) Those who have recovered from the virus , and have antibodies against it, can (and should) donate blood/plasma to be given to those who are sick and at risk of dying. Those on ventilators . This might be one of the only hopes for a quick treatment at this time. ( every recovered person who is otherwise healthy , should donate blood). This should be a priority plan ( just my opinion). Of course, assuming we build immunity after getting the infection ( which is probably the case). And By the way, we should know this by now. What do you think?
