Motorist Preparedness and More

If you are ever stranded on the road whether there is snow or not, there could less of an impact if you are equipped with an emergency kit. You can build your own inexpensive emergency kit and place it in your vehicle trunk for use in case of an emergency.

This kit should contain bottled water, energy bars, a flashlight, First Aid kit, jumper cables and a small shovel. The following website can provide you with more suggested items for your emergency kit: http://www.dmv.org/how-to-guides/emergency-kit.php.

Preparedness also extends beyond the vehicle. How do we prepare for a lack of water, shelter, food, communication with others, power, and caring for others? The following is a program called do1thing. This program breaks down the issues and the job of preparedness into manageable achievable methods of being prepared. The program focuses on one area of emergency each month. I plan to check out this program and hope you will too.

I also just finished reading an article written by the Michigan State Police, entitled “December 8, 2010— Give the Gift of Preparedness this Holiday.” Perhaps, you forgot to give yourself a gift or there may be someone you forgot on your list this year. This article may give you the gift ideas you were searching for.

The safety and security of our campus depends on everyone’s participation.
