    • FEMA Launches New Initiative to Increase Preparedness, Community Resilience Following Disasters

      Stock up NOW and be ready for a hurricane! Stock up NOW

      Weather-related disasters in the United States continue to increase in size, frequency and impact, and experience repeatedly demonstrates that communities are better prepared to withstand an emergency and recover more quickly when everyone is involved.   The workshop is being held as part of a new initiative, America’s PrepareAthon!, a nationwide, community-based campaign for action to increase emergency preparedness and resilience.

      The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) invites you to join us for the 1st ever FEMA Region 9 Whole Community Workshop in Oakland, Calif., on April 1, 2014.  The event will provide representatives of the public, private and non–profit worlds the opportunity to listen, ask questions, and participate in preparedness activities they could then share with their respective communities.  The panelists will share their stories on how to improve community resilience before a disaster strikes.

      FEMA’s Acting Regional Administrator Karen Armes will be joined by preparedness partners from the Bay Area and greater Region 9 area.  The workshop will include a presentation from San Francisco’s Daniel Homsey, Director of Neighborhood Resilience, to discuss San Francisco’s Empowered Communities Program, Building Resilient Cities One Neighborhood at a Time.  Divya Saini, a FEMA Region 9 Youth Member from Palo Alto, Calif., will also discuss local preparedness engagement strategies and activities.

      The Emmy award-nominated documentary, “A Village Called Versailles” by San Francisco based documentary filmmaker Leo Chiang will also be screened during the workshop.

      Twice yearly through drills, group discussions and exercises America’s PrepareAthon! will provide a national backdrop for individuals, organizations and communities to prepare for local hazards, and practice actions to stay safe.

      The goals of America’s PrepareAthon! are to increase the number of citizens who:
      • Understand the hazards most relevant to their community;
      • Know the corresponding action to stay safe;
      • Practice a real-time behavior to increase their preparedness; and
      • Contribute to increased whole-community preparedness planning

      Preppers know to be ready, but we all need our "Go Gear" - be ready when emergencies occur! Survival Gear! Wouldn't you like to be a Prepper too?
      Think about preparedness; at home, at work, at school, even in your car.

      Tsunami Preparedness Week

      It can be many miles long, from 1 to 100 feet high, traveling at 400 miles per hour.

      This ocean monster is known as a tsunami and it can wreak havoc on coastal populations and landscapes.

      A tsunami is a series of ocean waves caused by any large and sudden disturbance of the sea surface.

      CLICK TO PLAY THE TSUNAMI AWARENESS VIDEO CLICK TO PLAY THE TSUNAMI AWARENESS VIDEO

      Tsunamis can be generated by landslides, volcanic eruptions, or even meteorite impacts in the ocean. But they are most often caused by an earthquake where there's a sudden displacement of the ocean floor.

      When that happens, there's a transfer of energy from the seafloor to the ocean, causing waves on the surface to radiate outward in all directions. In deep waters, these waves may not even be detectable.

      But when the tsunami enters shallower waters, the wave speed slows and its height increases. The water along the coast may recede noticeably. A large wall of turbulent water, called a "bore," may also form.

      When the tsunami hits, it may come ashore like a fast rising flood and strike with devastating force. The series of waves may continue for hours. The first one may not be the last or the largest.

      For your safety, know the potential warning signs of an incoming tsunami: a strong earthquake that causes difficulty standing; a rapid rise or fall of the water along the coast; a load ocean roar.

      When you're in a coastal area, it's important to keep alert for messages from local officials, such as lifeguards, police, The US Tsunami Warning Centers and NOAA All Hazards Radio.

      If you find yourself in a location of a tsunami strike, here's what you need to do to stay safe:  keep calm; walk or run to higher ground, 100 feet above sea level or 1 mile inland; do not drive - keep roads open for emergency vehicles; if you cannot move to higher ground, use the stairs to get to the third floor or higher in a sturdy building; follow all instructions from local officials, and stay out of coastal areas until authorities issue an "all clear."

      Tsunamis can strike any coastline in the world, and can affect locations thousands of miles away from where they formed. They may be uncommon, but the devastation they cause makes them a deadly force in nature.

    • Water Sports and Beach/Water Skiing/Boat/Marine Safety

      During the long months of winter, it's hard to imagine ever stepping foot outside, but summer will be here before you know it. If you're one many who enjoy water sports in times of warmer weather, it's time to brush up on your water sport safety.

      Boating

      Something romantic about boating draws people to the water. Maybe it's the feeling of the wind whipping around your body, or watching the shore grow smaller behind you. Boating is pure bliss for some, but boating accidents can take all the fun out of the experience.

           Boat, Marine & Fishing First Aid Kits
      Fishing and marine First Aid Kits for Life Boat and on the water injuries - see our Pitt Stop packs, and our Maritime OSHA regulations, too!

      Here are some tips to help you and your kids stay safe on the water:

      • Get licensed and take a Boat Safety Course. According to the The State of New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission, anyone operating a water craft powered by a motor on fresh, non-tidal waters must possess a boat license. The boat license is easy to obtain. You'll need to pay an $18 fee and pass the 6 point ID requirements. The New Jersey DMV website states that all "power vessel operators, regardless of age, must hold a boating safety certificate from a state-approved program."
      • Wear life jackets. Young children can outgrow life jackets quickly. Check your life jackets every year before going on the water, to ensure they still fit.
      • Practice good judgment. Don't mix alcohol use and boating.

      Jet Skiing

      ShoreJet skiing is an exciting activity for young and old! Many of the same hazards that apply to boaters also apply to jet skiers. Here are a few tips to help you and your family stay safe while you participate in this thrilling sport.

      • Get licensed and take a Boat Safety Course. Sound familiar? According to the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission website, anyone operating a personal water craft—and this includes jet skis—must have a boating license and must pass the New Jersey Boat Safety Course. What does your State say?
      • Wear life jackets. This is no less important for jet skiing than for boating.

      Fishing

      Fishing is generally seen as a safe, peaceful sport. It's a great activity to pair with a family picnic along the shore. Like any sport, fishing has some hazards that can be avoided with the right precautions. These tips, found at TakeMeFishing.org, will help prevent accidents.

      • Handle equipment wisely. Look behind you before you cast to avoid catching your hook on a person or plant. Don't leave hooks in places where kids and adults can step on them.
      • Learn to swim. You may not be planning to swim where you fish, but even if you're only planning to wade into the water, you should still know how to swim. If you do go swimming, do so in the presence of others.
      • Practice boat safety. If you're fishing from a boat, all the same safety rules that apply to normal boaters will also apply to you.
      • Wear life jackets. This can't be reiterated enough, so let's say it together: "Life jackets save lives".

      No matter what you're doing outdoors, whether you're boating, jet skiing or fishing, remember to wear sunscreen, and put it on the little ones as well. If you're new to a particular sport, start simple. Take a class. Go with friends or family members who have experience. And don't forget to talk to your kids about water safety before taking them out for fun in the sun.

    • Budget for Preparedness

      In a recent FEMA household survey, we learned more than a quarter of participants reported they believe getting prepared is too expensive. Creating your disaster preparedness kit does not have to be costly! In fact, many of the items for your kit may be found around your home!

      Budget for Preparedness

      After you have built the majority of your kit from items already in your home, you can begin to build a list for the remaining items. Here are some additional tips from citizens across the country for keeping your disaster kit cost-friendly:

      • Shop at discount and dollar stores where appropriate;
      • Trade extra supplies with friends or family; and
      • Check the newspaper or online listings for discounted products.

      For more simple and cost-friendly disaster kit suggestions, and easy steps you should take if disaster strikes, you can access FEMA’s free online “Preparedness on a Shoestring” activity module.

      The “Preparedness on a Shoestring” activity module is part of FEMA’s “Preparedness Activities for Communities Everywhere” tools, which educates individuals about relatively easy steps to take to become prepared for all types of hazards.
