"Are you ready?" is VashonBePrepared's new public education campaign, explaining Vashon's unique risks and informing both residents and businesses how to get prepared for those risks. (HINT: Those are also our major parts of this section of the website. Check them out for more specifics and details!)
Each month we'll focus on different themes, but you can come here to get the big picture on steps you can take to safeguard yourself, your family, your home, your pets and Vashon's many organizations.
ARE YOU PREPARED FOR THE BIG ONE?
A lot depends on where you are when a disaster strikes. Since many of us spend more time at home than anywhere else, you may want to start there. A Family Plan for disaster should be a key part of any plan. Another good idea -- especially if you are a ferry commuter -- would be to have mobile supplies, what we call a "Go Kit" in your car.
