In a symbolic move, authority of Cal Poly Pomona gets passed to the sixth president, Soraya M. Disasters happen across the US and throughout the year resulting in property damage, injuries and stress. One of the most challenging aspects of dealing with disasters is knowing where your family members are located and how to get to them. With the use of mobile phones, computers, tablets and other technology, there are a number of ways to protect your family during an extreme situation. With some effort, making enhancements around the home can help protect your home a little better during disasters.
Elizabeth Dodson is the co-founder of HomeZada, a cloud-based home management and organizational software tool.
The SOL 2-Person Emergency Bivvy is a larger-sized full-protection shelter that reflects 90% of body heat for warmth in extreme temperatures. Vendors, regional organizations and public safety officials will give safety and emergency information, as well as sell basic supplies for an emergency kit. Take responsibility and take initiative to plan for yourself and those you love,” McFall says.

There are some tasks that you can do to keep yourself organized during these potentially high stress situations.  Getting prepared and organized in case of an emergency makes everyone feel in control and as ready as possible.
These are the basic necessities that can support you in case you are stranded or without power.
Add boards to windows and move outdoor furniture in or out of the line of the house when a hurricane warnings are issued.
It is good to practice emergency preparedness when an emergency is not present to get in the habit when the unexpected happens. HomeZada strives to educate and provide resources for homeowners in all areas of home management, including home improvement projects, maintenance, inventory, and preparedness. The SOL 2-Person Emergency Bivvy is made from the same heat-reflective polyethylene as AMK's world-famous emergency blankets (reflecting 90% of your body heat back to you), with the added benefit of being fully sealed so that no wind, rain, or snow can get inside. Without being alarmist or overly negative, McFall emphasizes the importance of planning ahead for individuals and families. Groups like the Salvation Army, Pomona CERT and Tzu Chi will share information on emergency planning and their relief services. PolyCentric is also the online face of the Office of Public Affairs, the university’s central communications office. If anyone in your family, including your pets, requires medication, make sure to grab this medication prior to exiting your home.
If family members are at school, work or running errands, determine what meeting place will be the central location and how to evacuate the area.

Using cloud technology, identify pertinent documents and take photos of all your belongings and upload this information into a solution that can support photos and documents. If you and your partner are forced to spend the unexpected night outdoors, both of you can hop in the SOL 2-Person Emergency Bivvy as soon as the temperature drops and instantly improve the odds in your favor. Additional items like batteries, a flashlight, a first aid kit and wet wipes can come in handy. Safely storing your information in the cloud can protect in case your home is no longer standing after a tragedy. Invest in a generator if you are prone to a lot of storms which take out the power regularly. Parking is available in Lot U for $5, the Farm Store has limited free parking, and campus shuttles are also available. At Vista del las Estrellas (Building 54), the fire department will provide fire extinguisher training.
