READY in 3

Three Steps to Emergency Preparedness

 

Ready 3 Logo

Would you be prepared to take care of yourself or your family in case of an emergency? Unfortunately, we don't get to know when a disaster will strike; tornadoes, other destructive storms, fires, and more can hit with little to no warning. Your level of preparation could determine your success in overcoming an emergency.

 

The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services has developed a "Ready in 3" program to teach people the three major steps to prepare for an emergency:

    * Create a plan for you, your family, and your business.
    * Prepare a kit for home, car and work.
    * Listen for information about what to do and where to go during an actual emergency.

Why make a plan? If disaster strikes, your family, or workers, may be scattered. Having a plan means that all of you know what to do ahead of time; for instance, who is your family's emergency contact? It's probably best to make it an out-of-town family member or friend who might not be affected by the same emergency as you.

 

Your home emergency kit should include the following items:

It's a good idea to plan for two situations: staying at home or leaving home. The type of emergency will dictate which plan to take, and emergency officials may tell you what you need to do. You should prepare a shelter at your home in the safest place possible, usually in the interior of the home, with few windows and doors. There should be enough room for your entire family. Should you have to leave, plan where your family members should meet.

 

    * Bottled water (one gallon of water per person per day, to last three days)
    * Canned or dried food (a three-day supply for each person, with a manual can opener)
    * Battery-powered radio
    * Flashlight
    * Extra batteries for radio and flashlight
    * First-aid kit
    * Prescription medicine
    * Clean clothes and sturdy shoes
    * Extra credit card
    * Extra money
    * Sturdy trash bags
    * Formula and baby food (if necessary)

One of the biggest to-do items is to stay calm after an emergency. Having a plan and having a way to get information both go a long way to helping calm the situation. If you listen for instructions and advice from emergency officials, you could overcome the situation more safely and quickly. That's why it's so important to have a battery-powered radio, and extra batteries, in your home.

StormReady


St. Peters earned StormReady status from the National Weather Service for implementing a number of procedures in the areas of emergency planning, enhanced warning and communications to help reduce the chance for disastrous weather-related consequences. Warning Coordination Meteorologist James P. Kramper of the National Weather Service commended St. Peters for having an excellent emergency management program, especially relating to severe weather. "Americans live in the most severe weather prone country on Earth," Kramper said in a letter. "StormReady communities are better prepared to save lives from the onslaught of severe weather through better planning, education, and awareness."
