FEMA launches Prepare with Pedro at the 2018 Youth Preparedness Council

FEMA Region V Administrator James Joseph was in Washington DC today for the Youth Preparedness Council at Red Cross HQ.

Great to see Ready.Gov partnering with everyone on today’s events.

Additionally, download the free Prepare with Pedro workbook for kids here.

Who loves sandbags?!!?! #NotMe #Hurricane #Irma

Busy lunch as we prep for Hurricane Irma hit. Can you say sandbags?


Disaster response = fun times.

Love me aisles preparedness stuff!

This store’s preparedness section is on fleek!

I love how they have things sectioned into different sections (kinda like by function).

Evacuation supplies seperated from foods.

And of course helmets and flashlights.

Flashlights a plenty!

I wish every store had sections like this dedicated to emergency preparedness / readiness.

Save your #Family #Emergency #Communications #Plan on multiple devices #NatlPrep #PrepareAthon

Here’s an easy Saturday plan – take a few moments to have your Family Emergency Communications Plan in hard copy, saved on laptop/tablet, and of course on your smart phone enabled device.

By having multiple backup copies of your Family Emergency Communications Plan, you can be assured that during an evacuation, you’ll have instant access to it for use by any member of your family.

Nice work! Now, it’s Saturday! Get out there and have some fun!

But do it safely and responsibly.

You got the touch, you got the power! #NatlPrep

4th week of 2015 National Preparedness Month is all about Power outages.

So do you have the power?

OK, that’s one power…but before you stick the Matrix in your chest, maybe simply start by charging your phone.

Don’t wait. Communicate. Make your emergency plan today.

Multi-purpose binder clips help a lot #NatlPrep #Prepared2014

Rounding the corner through the first week of 2014 National Preparedness Month!

“Be Disaster Aware, Take Action to Prepare”

Of course you need to be prepared right?!?!? My goal is to provide actionable information so that you can better prepare you and your family.

This week’s theme is consistent with FEMA’s National Preparedness Campaign: Reconnect with Family After a Disaster.

#4: Multi-purpose binder clips help keep wires organized for easy visual access to connection points #NatlPrep #Prepared2014

These office binder clips allow me to keep things organized, clean, stowed neatly, and tied down as I travel around. Additionally, I am able to pair the ends of the cables together so I can immediately see the end attachment points.

(And who doesn’t love binder clips right?)

I have assessed my entire family’s cell phones and mobile devices and found that this lightning cable is needed by everyone. We are an iPhone 5 & 5s family.

Not pictured above, are my micro USB cables which charge other mobile devices. Everyone should plan on supporting power needs for the family’s mobile devices (tablets) and accessories (keyboards).

Assessing the entire family’s cell phone power needs before a disaster can ensure that your family will remain connected through and after a disaster.

Family first peeps!
