There was a story about the St. Bernard Project, a nonprofit group, and Farmers Insurance who are preparing a Disaster Guide to help better prepare communities for the recovery after a natural disaster.
They are distributing their Disaster Recovery Playbook to cities and towns across the country.
The goal is to share some of the best practices that were learned by communities hit hard by devastating natural disasters, like the 2012 tornado that hit Joplin, Missouri, and Hurricane Katrina that battered New Orleans in 2005.
The residential recovery guide is designed to help cities and towns recover more quickly.
The vision is to “provide disaster-impacted communities the tools to recover promptly. Give residents clear action steps and disaster recovery organizations a standardized and adaptable model for post-disaster recovery.”
You can read the playbook at http://www.disasterrecoveryplaybook.org
Disaster preparedness demands that you have the essential supplies on hand for you and your family for at least a 72 hour supply. You cannot rely on normal support systems such as retail stores or first responders to help you. When disaster strikes is not the time to start emergency planning.
We have a great selection of food, water, first aid and other Emergency Kits to get you thru those crucial first 72 hours.
