Do More. Emergency Preparedness – After Sandy

10 Feb

East Coast Begins To Clean Up And Assess Damage From Hurricane Sandy

Although Hurricane Sandy is not in the news as much recently, people are still without homes and have been devastated by one of the worst storms of the century. Right now as I write this blog entry, yet again, we in the Northeast are experiencing a major storm billed “The Snow Bomb.”

With what seems to be the beginning of a potential pattern of major storms coming our way for the long-term, I thought it would be good to share my Disaster Preparedness Packet with you.

Here are a few things I’ve put together that might help as you prepare for anything that might come your way (storms, pandemic, Zombies, Aliens, etc.):

Helpful info to be prepared for anything: this info got me through Sandy and gave me and my wife peace of mind when all was dark in lower Manhattan after transformers exploded near Union Square.

  • My Amazon.com Preparedness Wish List: One of the most important things for preparedness is making the list of items you’ll need to be hydrated, full, warm and sheltered. In this list are items you will want to have so you can stay home for at least 2-4 weeks if you need to, and have the right things if you need to leave your home in a moment’s notice. I’ve prioritized the list in order of importance so that you can gather them over time without concern about being ill-prepared. The list includes helpful books as well. You can download the list here: http://wp.me/a37vSg-3R
  • Food & Water: The list above does not include food lists but the books and some links in the doc do have some guidance on this. Additionally, below are some links to give you a sense for what you should keep at home that you can get online or from your local grocery (e.g., dried foods, canned foods and other non-perishables).
  • Help in Your Community: It always helps to know where you can get help in case you aren’t as prepared as you would like OR if you would like help getting prepared. CERT – Community Emergency Response Teams – https://www.citizencorps.gov/cert/ have a lot of great resources for members of local communities. From my perspective, it’s a great resource that not nearly enough people know about or utilize.

Additional helpful resources: These are some other resources you might consider if you want to go beyond the basics

  • CDC Zombie Fun? Yep, the CDC has found a way to make Disaster Preparedness Fun, especially for all you “Walking Dead” fans. I guess it makes sense, if you’re going to prepare, you might as well prepare for the worst because then, you’ll be ready for whatever is likely to come. http://www.cdc.gov/phpr/zombies.htm
  • Long-term Food Storage Resources: Whether you are religious or not, the Latter-Day Saints don’t discriminate. They offer a lot of services for Emergency Preparedness and are especially knowledgable about long-term food storage. If we ever experience any major emergencies, the Latter-Day Saints will be on top of the ball. Here is a link to the site where you can access info on what you should do and where you can go to can food in bulk. https://www.lds.org/topics/food-storage/longer-term-food-supply?lang=eng#1

Here is a guy who is definitely a “A Do More™”:

Casey Neistat: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xylEd9AD6xQ

Strangely enough the title of this video he made is “Do More” and he’s made a number of videos for Nike and their “Make it Count” Campaign. Pretty inspirational.

We’re getting some Fuel Bands today so we can…

Do More!

Doublydo™

28 Jan

Have you ever done two things at once or accomplished two things at the same time? If you have, you experienced a “doublydo™.”

For example:

– Walking up the stairs instead of taking the elevator – you’re getting somewhere and exercising.
– Taking your compost to the local YMCA/YWCA and then working out

As we Do More, we hope to doublydo™ as much as we can – it’s like the extra credit of actions.
