2 Steps a Month A Community-Based Disaster Preparedness Program
Organize your community! The 2 Steps a Month is a program to help organize yourself and your community to be more prepared in the case of an disaster. Each month we’ll focus on two steps that you can take to become more prepared. We encourage you to share this information with friends, family, neighbors and members of your community.
Ideas on how to organize your community 1. Make copies of the handouts and distribute. Make them a different color each month. 2. Get several people in your community to distribute the monthly flyers and have them check in with those people to answer questions and to add that personal touch. 3. Get emails of community members or neighbors to make the documents available electronically. You can also send a couple of reminders monthly to get the monthly steps back on people’s radars. 4. Have a monthly gathering to discuss emergency preparedness. For some months, you can get together and do the steps together such as creating first aid kits or go bags. 5. Post flyers around your neighborhood. Use the same color as the monthly flyer. Click on Month 1 to get started.
