ONE MORE HOUR OF WHAT?!?!?!!?

Daylight Savings: Three Tips to “Fall Back” into Fall

Sunday, November 4, Daylight Saving Time ends and we set our clocks back an hour. Take advantage of extra sleep, then take a few simple steps to make your home more disaster-resilient:
  1. Verify your carbon monoxide and smoke detector work. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for testing the equipment to ensure it is functioning appropriately. Invest in new detectors if they’re near or past the manufacturer’s recommended replacement age.
  2.  Check your emergency kit. You may have to evacuate at a moment’s notice and take essentials with you or survive on your own after a disaster. Ensure you have an adequate supply of non-perishable food, water and medications to last your family at least 72 hours, along with a flashlight, batteries, cash, and first aid supplies.
  3. Confirm your insurance coverage & home inventory list are up-to-date. Review your insurance policies and meet with your agent to ensure you’re fully covered for the hazards you face. Be sure to keep a written and visual (i.e., videotaped or photographed) record of all major household items and valuables, even those stored in basements, attics or garages. Create files that include serial numbers and store receipts for major appliances and electronics. Have jewelry and artwork appraised. These documents are important when filing insurance claims.

Reviewing performance evaluations for Hurricane Irma’s response

Spending my Sunday reading through paperwork, demobilization emails, and my performance evaluations from Hurricane Irma’s disaster response.


“Mr. Sur is “a model for the agency.'” – FEMA Division Supervisor Mark Landry (Federal Coordinating Officer cadre).

*blush*

Just glad to be a part of the FEMA disaster response to help my fellow Americans.

My Sunday views #NatlPrep

Slightly different Sunday view for me.

Great discussion with USSS today.

Great to see many local, state, and Federal partner agencies involved in safety/security for everyone in September – National Preparedness Month.

As you know, preparedness is everyone’s responsibility.

Large header in Columbus #fire 

Made a pit stop in Columbus today, and walked out to a header. Upon closer look…


I followed Truck-2 in.

 


Smelled different than a normal work.



All the foncy trucks attended. But sadly, it was only mulch. Basically large open burning.


Oh well.

But hey, at least the sun was out.
