🧑‍🏫 Teach Youth About Preparedness

This week we will be discussing resources to educate our young emergency managers! While most states have a high school requirement for CPR training, there are also plenty of opportunities for certified training at as early as 11 years of age.

The American Red Cross hosts Babysitting classes (11+) for preteens looking to learn how to provide safe child care and emergency actions when adults are not available. CPR/First Aid/AED training can be added to the course upon registration or taken as separate modules entirely. Access to this course can be found here: https://www.redcross.org/take-a-class/babysitting/babysitting-child-care-training

For our emergency managers younger than 11, there are plenty of resources available for e-learning! Air Force Emergency Management offers dozens of interactive activities to teach preparedness via our website! Please go to www.BeReady.af.mil for access to our library of printable activities. You can also contact your installation's Office of Emergency Management for additional information, to include getting a copy of the Be Ready Kids Emergency Preparedness Activity Book.

Rotating outer rainbands from Hurricane Sally have necessitated the issuance of a Tornado Watch for parts of Alabama and Florida until 6 PM CDT. A Tornado Watch means conditions are favorable for tornadoes and severe thunderstorms in and close to the watch area. Persons in these areas should be on the lookout for threatening weather conditions and listen for later statements and possible warnings.

We all know roads can flood quickly and with little warning in our area. We will do our best to keep you updated on road conditions, but as we saw with TS Marco, sometimes conditions change too rapidly.

If you encounter floodwaters, please turn around, don't drown! Find an alternate route or find a safe place to wait until floodwaters subside.

10am CDT Advisory by The National Hurricane Center shows Tropical Storm Sally offshore moving slowly toward northern Gulf coast. Continued slow motion is expected, with outer bands producing most of our local impacts. Biggest threat remains heavy rain. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect thru Wed morning, which now includes southeast AL. There is also a marginal risk (threat level 1/5) of severe weather today for coastal areas generally west of Ochlockonee River, where isolated tornadoes are possible.

Today (September 10th) is the statistical peak day of the Atlantic hurricane season. The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical Storm Paulette, located over the central tropical Atlantic - www.nhc.noaa.gov/#Paulette - and on Tropical Storm Rene, located over the eastern tropical Atlantic www.nhc.noaa.gov/#Rene

Elsewhere, we're watching several areas for any potential formation. One is a trough of low pressure located just off the coast of North Carolina, producing minimal shower and thunderstorm activity. This system is expected to move inland over eastern North Carolina this afternoon, and therefore significant development is not expected. It has a near zero chance of formation durnig the next five days.

A large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms centered a couple of hundred miles northeast of the Central Bahamas is associated with a surface trough of low pressure. This system is forecast to move westward, crossing the Bahamas and Florida on Friday and moving into the eastern Gulf of Mexico over the weekend. Upper-level winds are expected to become conducive for some development of this system while it moves slowly west-northwestward over the eastern Gulf of Mexico early next week. It has a low (30 percent) chance of formation during the next five days.

Another trough of low pressure has developed over the northeastern Gulf of Mexico and is producing a few disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Some slow development of this system is possible while this system moves westward and then southwestward over the northern and western Gulf of Mexico through early next week. It has a low (20 percent) chance of formation during the next five days.

A tropical wave is now moving off the west coast of Africa, producing a large area of showers and thunderstorms. Gradual development of this system is forecast, and a tropical depression is expected to form by this weekend or early next week while the system moves generally westward across the eastern and central tropical Atlantic. It has a high (90 percent) chance of formaiton during the next five days.

Another tropical wave is forecast to emerge off the west coast of Africa this weekend. Environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for development, and a tropical depression could form over the far eastern tropical Atlantic Ocean early next week while the system moves slowly westward. It has a medium (40 percent) chance of formation during the next five days. www.hurricanes.gov

📦 Build a Kit

This week we will be focusing on how to build and maintain your emergency kits. Whether at home, work, or driving in your car, you should always have a kit on hand in the event of an emergency.

Your home kit will likely be the most robust of all three. This is because it should cover you and your entire family, as applicable. Your water and non-perishable food supply, for example, should be multiplied by each additional member of your family. Maintain at least 3 days worth of food and water, keeping in mind the recommendation of 1 gallon of water per person per day.

Additionally, make sure that every member of your family understands what's in the kit and knows how to use each item. Develop some age-appropriate activities for your kids to help them understand their role in the emergency and what to do if you (or other guardians) are not around, or are otherwise incapacitated.

📋 MAKE A PLAN

Making an emergency plan for you and your family might sound like an easy enough task, but there are plenty of factors that you should consider verifying annually. Did you move? Adopt a pet? Have a baby? Switch homeowner's insurance? Life isn't static, and neither should your emergency planning.

Here are some things to check at least once a year in your family plans:

✔ Escape Routes
✔ Family Communications
✔ Utility Shut off and Safety
✔ Insurance and Vital Records
✔ The Elderly and People with Special Needs
✔ Safety Skills (First Aid, CPR)
✔ Caring for Animals
