On Being Prepared: What @OCGOVCA is Up To....

As our on-going development continues, we wanted to report a sampling of what our community here in Orange County Does as we recently celebrated National Preparedness Month 2019.
As previously reported in my newsletter, September is National Preparedness Month, and the 2019 theme is: Prepared, Not Scared. Be Ready for Disasters.
ReadyOC and AlertOC collaborated on this year's National Preparedness Month toolkit for content specific to Orange County.
The toolkit provides photos and graphics, along with sample newsletter copy to use on social media, websites, print or digital newsletters and more to promote broader awareness about emergency preparedness and the importance of registering for AlertOC.
We hope that you can share this information on your organization's social and digital channels. Thank you for supporting these two vital campaigns and helping our great County to prepare!

Be Disaster Aware! Are You Prepared?
Because September is National Preparedness Month, our friends at Santa Margarita Water District (SMWD) remind us that having an ample supply of water is also a top priority in an emergency. You can live for weeks without food, but without water, you can die in as little as 3 days!
Help emergency responders, water districts, and other relief organizations by having an adequate emergency supply of water, food and other essentials. Store one gallon of water per person, per day for three days.
According to the American Red Cross and FEMA, you should store at least a two-week supply of water for each member of your family. A minimum three-day supply is essential. Don’t forget to store additional supplies for your pets, too! For more water storage tips from SMWD, click here or on the image below.
