Any major disaster could temporarily overwhelm Police, Fire and Ambulance and First Responders. There are many daily conveniences that we all take for granted; running water, electricity, gas, telephones, getting cash from an ATM machine, or even running to the grocery store to pick up milk and bread. All of us face the possibility of natural disasters, accidents, power outages or intentional acts to disrupt our daily lives.
Preparedness is a continuous cycle of planning, organizing, training, equipping, exercising, evaluation and improvement activities to ensure effective coordination and the enhancement of capabilities to prevent, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate the effects of natural disasters, acts of terrorism, and other man-made disasters.
In the preparedness phase, emergency managers develop plans of action to manage and counter their risks and take action to build the necessary capabilities needed to implement such plans. Proper maintenance and training of emergency services, including mass human resources such as Community Emergency Response Teams. Learn how to prepare for your family and at your workplace, explore many links to resources and see what to do for your pets.
As with any sort of preparation for all types of emergencies, make sure to put together a grab bag full of survival supplies (see image on the left). As a member of the university community you also have a responsibility to familiarize yourself with FIU’s emergency communication plan and be an active participant in your own safety by staying alert to messages from university and local emergency managers. Although the focus is on hurricanes at this time of year, it is important for you to know that FIU plans for all types of emergencies that may affect the university community. Faculty and staff should also take a moment to become familiar with your department’s Continuity of Operations Plan now. This year we have created an informational poster you can download, post and reference as you make your preparations for the season.
We’re pleased to welcome Tala Hooban from the Administration on Children and Families to Public Health Matters.
Planning for emergencies is important, especially since your family may not be together when disaster hits.
Now that I work for an agency focused on child and family safety I’m even more aware of the importance of being prepared to ensure safety and a smooth recovery process.

Plan has been working in Colombia since 1962, helping children access their rights to health, education, livelihoods and protection.


We work closely with communities, empowering them to take an active role in organizing and participating in creating sustainable solutions to existing problems. Plan believes firmly that children and young people have the capacity to improve their quality of life. Many children drop out of school because they’re forced to work or because violence forced their family to move. Supporting inclusive and safe environments so children and youth can benefit from a healthy, violence-free life.
Working to ensure children and youth are protected against child abuse, domestive violence, discrimination, armed conflict and sexual and physical violence. Working with young people, especially women, to help them become economically stronger citizens by providing technical training and financial support.
Founded in 1937, we are one of the world’s oldest and largest international development agencies, working in partnership with millions of people around the world to end global poverty.

Both the Red Cross and FEMA recommend that you try to be self-sufficient for at least 72 hours (3 days) following a disaster. Power outages can close grocery stores, put ATM machines out of order and prevent you from doing simple things like putting gasoline in your car. We cannot control the weather or prevent disasters from happening, but there are steps you can take to minimize risks from known hazards. Professional emergency workers are rapidly overwhelmed in mass emergencies so trained, organized, responsible volunteers are extremely valuable. The spot shouldn’t be too difficult to reach from home, and, more importantly, needs to be chosen with the potential outreach of the disaster in mind. If you do decide to go with the isolated shelter, find access to water nearby or keep it well-stocked. As soon as possible after an emergency, you should establish contact with your colleagues and supervisor. Tala works in ACF’s Office of Human Services Emergency Preparedness and Response and understands the importance of keeping families safe and together during a disaster. Make sure to involve your children in the planning process, when you include children they’re more likely to remember the plan and act on it.
That’s why we strive to ensure that their voices are heard on issues that affect their lives.
Not for profit, independent and inclusive of all faiths and cultures, we have only one agenda: to improve the lives of children.

Plan ahead with food, too; have some set aside for emergency use only or know where you can get it in case of one.

There are many factors to consider when setting up a bug-out location, the most important of which center around the home’s environment. In areas where an extreme weather warning will provide for enough time to plan and pack, remember: distance from the potential outreach of the disaster is crucial. When the term “bug-out location” comes up, often, people immediately think bomb shelter or isolated mountain home. The University has taken steps to ensure the safety of our students, faculty and staff and I urge you to take this opportunity to do the same. From bad weather to major economic collapse, having a safe location to bail to in case of a catastrophic event is crucial to any family’s emergency preparation plans.
Have the bug-out location be as far away as possible without being beyond the reach of a tank of gas or two and still potentially being in harm’s way.
While these can be very, very effective housing solutions during a big-time disaster, they aren’t really that common or the most economical of choices or even necessary. For something even more widespread, such as an economic collapse or military disaster, it’s less “how far from home” and more “how far from civilization” (think complete isolation here). The homes of family and friends, if available, would work – just make sure to discuss it being an option beforehand. Communicate; perhaps, come up with separate evac plans that would allow either your family or theirs to use the other’s home as shelter for a time until the danger passes on or until other plans are arranged. A spare plot of land in rural area can be acquired and developed to allow for a short stay without much of a supplemental strain being placed on a family during the time spent there. This could even serve simply as an over-sized emergency food and supplies storage away from home, or a survivalist’s supply drop of sorts. While not the cheapest of options (and maybe not even a real possibility due to a lack of developmental land for sale within that gas-tank or two driving distance), it too would serve its purpose well if the opportunity to purchase were to present itself.
