Crisis = Blog 1: Disaster Site
I found a great disaster preparedness site and it has to do with events that just happened. I am sure that everyone was a little worried about Hurricane Irene and the damage she was going to do to the east coast. Fortunately for us it wasn’t that much damage and rumors are now circulating about the media blowing it up to be something that it wasn’t. However, the east coast should be prepared to the best of their abilities just in case they have similar problems in the future.
Because of this I found http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/HAW2/english/disaster_prevention.shtml a hurricane preparedness site. The site has important sub categories like developing a family plan, which means making sure your family knows what to do in case a Hurricane is suppose to come in your area. The next step was to have a disaster supply kit, things like food, batteries, flashlights, first aid, etc. The third category was having a place to go. If you remember the effects of Hurricane Katrina you see that New Orleans was no longer a place where you can live so you need another place out of your state hopefully to go. The fourth is securing your home and the last is having a pet plan. WIth these tips it might make you a little bit more in control when a hurricane effects your area.
