It is Tuesday and the final day of 2014 National Preparedness Month.
“Be Disaster Aware, Take Action to Prepare”
National Preparedness Day!!!!
This week’s theme is consistent with FEMA’s National Preparedness Campaign: Practice for an emergency
#30: Flat Stanley & Flat Stella stopped by the fire station to check out our emergency preparedness kits. #NatlPrep #Prepared2014
In honor of National Preparedness Day, we had two special visitors at our fire station. Flat Stanley and Flat Stella stopped by for a quick visit and tour.
They wanted to see if all Firefighters and Paramedics were participating and prepared as part of September’s 2014 National Preparedness Month which was held all month long.
Both Flat Stanley and Flat Stella checked our Emergency Preparedness Kit in Ladder-11.
Flat Stanley asked if we had enough water ready…
Of course we do!
Flat Stella asked to see our emergency contact list as well as my new smoke detector.
As you can see, our emergency contact information is contained in the Vial of Life Program. And smoke detectors are always free from the fire department.
Flat Stanley made sure these were fresh fire extinguishers and they were ready to go.
Both had an awesome chance to take a ride in BFD Ladder-11.
Special thanks to the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Ready.Gov program.
Also thanks to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), FEMA’s Ready.Gov, Ohio Department of Public Safety (ODPS), Ohio Emergency Management Agency (OEMA), and the Trumbull County Emergency Management Agency.
What a month! I’m proud of everyone who participated in National Preparedness Month and extremely happy that everyone is more prepared for any emergency or disaster.
