WHAT IS DO-1-THING?

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.

OCTOBER:

THE GOAL: Electricity is something that we take for granted every day. How long could you stay in your home without electricity? Would you have heat, and a way to prepare food? By planning now you can be ready when the lights go out.

Do One Thing (choose one thing to do this month):

*Have flashlights ready in an easily accessible place.
*Check batteries in flashlights and radios.
*Create a power outage checklist and review it with your family.
*Learn how to safely use portable generators.
