TODAY….a little more preaching about Emergency Management…
Why we do it….Why we tell others to do it…. Why we train/exercise and insist our local elected officials need to pay attention and also participate in exercises.
Being prepared is what it’s all about…. Preparing emergency plans and exercising those plans…. It’s why regular monthly testing is done to test those sirens and radios…. It’s why fire / police / ambulance and hospital / public health / businesses / volunteers / and yes….even the everyday citizen needs to focus on www.ready.Illinois.gov
Young school age kids are taught emergency response and many times, it’s those kids who take that message home to mom & dad, moms & dads and others who might be a little complacent about emergency management.
Sunday’s weather emergency… what happened in Washington, IL; Gifford, IL; Diamond and Coal City, IL, Brookport, IL; New Minden, IL… is yet another example of being prepared.
