You need to plan and prepare!
For years, I, Pamela Isom, CEO of ICE Safety Solutions have provided corporations around the globe with disaster preparedness plans, training and equipment. I drafted Emergency Action Plans, Storm Contingency Plans, Active Shooter Plans, Earthquake Preparedness Plans and provided corresponding training, kits and equipment for all the above. I was feeling pretty good about myself and the services my firm delivers. UNTIL…the rash of natural disasters! I had to sit by, glued to television coverage, feeling utterly helpless for my friends who were forced to shelter in place, evacuate or were rushed into a Red Cross shelter.
Due to Hurricanes #Harvey, #Irma, #Maria and #Mexico, many of my minority and women business enterprise and corporate member friends have reached out asking, “What should I do before the next disaster?” My response:
PLAN AND PREPARE
Plan—Design a Family Emergency Communication Plan for family to communicate and coordinate with your spouse, children, babysitters, preschools and friends. Here’s a sample plan you can use.
Prepare—The biggest challenge is calculating how much food and water you will need for yourself, family and pets. Please use our Food & Water Calculator to help identify how much you may need.
