CSP Spotlight: National Preparedness Month - Get Invoved, Be a Part of Something Larger

09 Oct 2017

Planning ahead for disasters can be the difference between going out of business and running a successful one.  As many as 40 percent of businesses never recover after a disaster. Get your campus, business, faith-based organization and community organization prepared for an emergency. Join Weather Ready Nation and sign up for Ready Business Workshop.

  • Develop a preparedness program for your business to plan for & reduce the impact of disasters. Find more info here:  www.ready.gov/business
  • Make sure your school has emergency procedures in place for disasters that could affect your campus.
  • Know how to get in touch with family/friends if phones are down. Text instead of call and mark yourself as safe on social media.
  • If you can’t get in touch with family/friends after a disaster, register yourself as “Safe and Well” on the Red Cross’ website. 
  • Sign up to receive alerts from your school in case of an emergency like an active shooter event or natural disaster.

Planning ahead for disasters is critical. Are you prepared? Here are some things to do help protect you, your family, and your friends.
