Good Morning everyone. Hope all is well with all of you as we start our day right with a reminder of how important it is to prepare for emergencies. September is known as National Preparedness Month. Since September 11th, 2001, the US government has taken steps to ensure that everyone has taken precaution in preparing for natural and public health disasters. Not everyone lives by areas that are affected by natural disasters; however, emergencies never have itineraries. We would see a path of the hurricane on television but cannot relate expectation to reality until we experience it ourselves. Instead of scrambling around the house looking for things to pack, why not have it ready when you need it in a closet nook?
–2011 Tōhoku Earthquake, Japan: On March 11, 2011, a mega underwater earthquake shook Pacific coast and affected thousands of lives across Japan because people were killed, displaced from their homes, and many missing. During an earthquake, move away from street lights, buildings, and utility wires. In Japan, the earthquake was followed by a tsunami. During a tsunami, do not just stand there and watch it happen for a YouTube video because you are putting yourself in danger. Run!
–Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, USA, 2012. As I remember correctly, 20 children were fatally shot by the gunman, along with 6 staff members. Follow instructions that your teachers are giving you during a lockdown. Even if it’s a drill take it seriously. Sandy Hook, Columbine High School, and Virginia Polytechnic Institute are real incidents that took the lives of innocent victims. These schools are popular around the world for the wrong reasons. School shootings are serious and knowing where to go in terms of evacuation is crucial for your safety and of others around you.
