The Enlisted Heritage House held their Inaugural Trunk or Treat event at Selfridge Air National Guard Base Oct 24. This event was created to provide some of our military and DoD employees’ children an opportunity to trick or treat in a safe and fun environment in the event that traditional trick or treating had been cancelled due to COVID. Approximately 150 children and their families participated, which included prizes for the best decorated trunk and costumes.

All health and safety guidelines were adhered to limit any exposure.

Tara’s Walk Results

Great things happen when we all come together to accomplish a goal. We had a tremendous turnout of families, friends, departments, and retirees.
On behalf of the Family Advocacy Program, Turning Point of Macomb and Tara’s family we would like to thank everyone for participating in the virtual walk. As a team we had 84 walkers not including our four legged friends and logged over 376 miles! We walked, we ran, we jogged, rode bikes and one person even rode a horse to bring awareness to Domestic Violence. The virtual walk was a huge success and will be an annual event.
Let’s do it again next year…

History:
President Calvin Coolidge proclaimed the first National Fire Prevention Week on October 4-10, 1925, beginning a tradition of the President of the United States signing a proclamation recognizing the occasion. It is observed on the Sunday through Saturday period in which October 9 falls in commemoration of the Great Chicago Fire, which began October 8, 1871 and did most of its damage October 9. The horrific fire killed more than 250 people, left 100,000 homeless, destroyed more than 17,400 structures and burned more than 2,000 acres.

The annual Tara's Walk is going virtual this year and will take place October 4th – October 10th in memory of Tara Grant, the Macomb County mother who was murdered by her husband, Stephen Grant, back in 2007.

What is Tara’s virtual walk?

Tara's family began the walk to raise awareness about domestic violence and prevent other families from experiencing the tragedy and loss of a loved one like Tara's family did. It's put on with Turning Point, which provides emergency support and prevention services for domestic and sexual violence survivors in metro Detroit.

How Can I participate?

Sign up to join Army Community Services for Tara’s virtual walk by sending an email to the DTA Team Sponsor Pandora Brown at: [email protected]

All participants should wear purple and walk during the week of Oct 4th – Oct 10th and complete the mileage at your own convenience and wherever you live. Once your walk is finished send a picture of you and your team to DTA Team Sponsor Pandora Brown at the email address above. Everyone that sends over their individual or team pics/videos will receive a promotional bag of fun gift items for participating.

September is National Preparedness Month

Week 4:
Teach Youth About Preparedness: Disasters happen everywhere, and every member of the family can prepare. Preparedness for the future starts today. Whether you’re a kid or teen yourself, a parent or loved one, or work with youth, Ready Kids has tools and information to help before, during and after disasters.

Be a Ready Kid! Emergencies and disasters can be scary, but there are ways to help you stay safe before, during, and even after a disaster. Here, you can play games to become a Disaster Master and learn how to build an emergency kit. You will meet our friend Pedro the Penguin, who will teach you all about staying safe. You will even be able to make your own emergency plan with your family.

Talk it Through! If a disaster happens, knowing who to call and where to meet is an important part of emergency planning for you and your family. Use this page to write down all of your family contact information and keep a copy with you wherever you go.

Build a Kit: When making an emergency kit, it’s important to know what your family already has and what you still need. Sit down with your family and use this checklist to decide what else you need to make sure you and your family are prepared for any emergency.

https://www.ready.gov/kids/kids

Everybody Has a Role—Including Teens:
Teenagers and other young people help their families, schools, and communities prepare for disasters. They can be leaders before, during, and after disasters. Whether you’re just starting to learn about preparedness, want to join or start a youth preparedness program, or are looking for materials to teach the next generation of preparedness leaders, you’ll find lots of options on this page to help you learn how to prepare for a disaster. We all have a role to play in ensuring the safety of our communities. You, too, can make a difference!

Teen CERT:
As a teen, there are probably a lot of things you’re told you can’t do. But there is one very important thing you can do: Learn to protect yourself, your family, and your friends in case of disaster. The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program is a national program of volunteers trained in disaster preparedness and emergency response. Volunteers come from all ages and all walks of life, including teenagers like you! Through Teen CERT, you can serve your community and help take care of your school and home.

Why Join?
Would you know what to do if an emergency struck your community or your school? After a disaster, professional responders will be needed everywhere. In the chaotic aftermath of an emergency, who could help until professional responders arrive? Who could be the first person on-scene to step up? The answer: You. In most emergencies, a bystander, or even the victim, provides the first immediate assistance. Joining Teen CERT teaches you how to respond when others look to you for help.

What You’ll Do:
We all have a role to play in keeping our communities safe—no matter where you live, no matter who you are, no matter how you participate. What role will you play? Once you complete your CERT training, you can participate in or lead a variety of activities. During an emergency, your Teen CERT could: organize volunteers, assist in evacuations, give assistance to survivors, provide damage assessment information, provide shelter support, and assist with crowd control.
Teen CERTs can also help in their schools year-round. Your Teen CERT could: participate in disaster drills and exercises, present fire safety education, assist in preparedness outreach, provide peer mentoring, and address safety issues in the school.

Disasters and Emergencies | Ready.gov

Prepare for Disasters:
Find out the best way to limit the impacts a disaster may have, like having the right insurance coverage or what can you do to your home to make it stronger and more resilient. Learn about your community, how to get emergency alerts, and where to go if you and your family need to evacuate. Make sure your family has a plan and practice it often.

Know your community:
Learn about the hazards that may strike your community, the risks you face from these hazards, and your community’s plans for warning and evacuation. You can obtain this information from your local emergency management office or your local chapter of the American Red Cross.

Warning Systems and Signals:
The Emergency Alert System (EAS) can address the entire nation on very short notice in case of a grave threat or national emergency. Ask if your local radio and TV stations participate in the EAS. National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Weather Radio (NWR) is a nationwide network of radio stations broadcasting continuous weather information directly from a nearby National Weather Service office to specially configured NOAA weather radio receivers. Determine if NOAA Weather Radio is available where you live. If so, consider purchasing a NOAA weather radio receiver.

Evacuating yourself and your family:
When community evacuations become necessary, local officials provide information to the public through the media. In some circumstances, other warning methods, such as sirens or telephone calls, also are used. Additionally, there may be circumstances under which you and your family feel threatened or endangered and you need to leave your home, school, or workplace to avoid these situations. The amount of time you have to leave will depend on the hazard. If the event is a weather condition, such as a hurricane that can be monitored, you might have a day or two to get ready. However, many disasters allow no time for people to gather even the most basic necessities, which is why planning ahead is essential.

https://www.ready.gov/be-informed

Hurricanes are dangerous and can cause major damage because of storm surge, wind damage, and flooding. They can happen along any U.S. coast or in any territory in the Atlantic or Pacific oceans. Storm surge is historically the leading cause of hurricane-related deaths in the United States. Eastern P...
