DO1THING - THE MARCH THEME IS SHELTERING http://do1thing.com/files/calendar/Sheltering.pdf
Do1thing is a 12-month program that makes it easy for you to prepare yourself, your family, and your community for emergencies and disasters. The do1thing program breaks the job of emergency preparedness into 12 smaller monthly pieces:
• Each month, the program focuses on one area of emergency preparedness and provides a variety of actions that you can take to become better prepared.
• If you do1thing each month, by the time a year has passed, you will have taken big steps towards preparing yourself, your family, and your community for emergencies and disasters.
The mission of do1thing is to move individuals, families, organizations, businesses, and communities to prepare for all hazards and become disaster resilient.
