Let’s take hurricane preparedness seriously CEO/ AMERICAN RED CROSS MID-FLORIDA REGION KAREN HAGAN

to become informed about what to do before, during and after a hurricane event: • Know how your property will be affected when storm surge or tidal flooding is forecasted. • Learn your community hurricane evacuation routes, where the safe shelters are and what your plan is for evacuating should you need to. • Download the free American Red Cross first aid, hurricane and tornado apps by dialing **RedCross from your smart phone. • Develop a disaster plan, and put together a disaster kit to ensure you are as prepared as possible.

• Make plans to secure your property: board up windows, clear rain gutters and downspouts, bring in outdoor furniture and garbage cans, secure your boat and trim trees and shrubs, so they are more wind resistant, to name a few examples. • Develop a family communications plan: put adult family members’ contact information on cards in the kids’ backpacks; identify a friend or relative, who lives out of state for household members to notify that they are safe if a disaster occurs, (out-of-town calls are sometimes easier to make in an emergency) and familiarize yourself with www.redcross.org/safeandwell; teach all family members how to use text messaging; and subscribe to alert services, including the Red Cross apps, to warn you about severe weather. • Put together a kit that includes food (non-perishable), water (at least one

gallon of water per person per day) and supplies for at least three days. Supplies should include: • Battery-powered or hand-crank radio • Flashlight and extra batteries • Whistle to signal for help • Moist towelettes, garbage bags and plastic ties • Manual can opener • Local maps • Cell phone with chargers • Prescription medications and glasses • Pet food and extra water for pets • Cash • Important family documents (insurance policies, identification, See CEO, Page 4

Volunteers from throughout Brevard County gather at the Rockledge branch of the American Red Cross in April during the organization’s annual Volunteer Recognition Event.

In times of disaster, the Red Cross is there Special to Hometown News Each year, the American Red Cross immediately responds to about 70,000 natural and man-made disasters in the United States, ranging from fires to hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, tornadoes, hazardous materials spills, transportation accidents and explosions. People count on the Red Cross to help them in their darkest hour. In turn, the support of donors makes it possible for the Red Cross to fulfill its humanitarian mission. We are deeply grateful for the generosity of individuals, corporations and foundations who invest in the Red Cross. To find out more about American Red Cross disaster services programs at work, visit The Red Cross Disaster Online Newsroom, Flickr, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Linkedin and Social Vibe. The Red Cross was chartered by the United States Congress to “carry on a system of national and international relief in time of peace and apply the same in mitigating the sufferings

caused by pestilence, famine, fire, floods and other great national calamities, and to devise and carry on measures for preventing the same.” The Charter is unique to the Red Cross because it assigns duties and obligations to the nation, to disaster survivors and to the people who generously support its work through donations. Red Cross disaster relief focuses on meeting people’s immediate emergency needs caused by disaster. When disaster threatens or strikes, the Red Cross provides shelter, food, health and emotional health service to address basic human needs and assist individuals and families in resuming their normal daily activities independently. The Red Cross also feeds emergency workers, like fire fighters and police, handles inquiries from concerned family members outside the disaster area, provides blood and blood products to disaster victims and helps them access other available resources.

Preparing you and your pets in times of disaster The best way to protect your household from the effects of a disaster is to have a disaster plan. If you are a pet owner, that plan must include your pets. Being prepared can save their lives. Different disasters require different responses. But whether the disaster is a hurricane or a hazardous spill, you may have to evacuate your home. In the event of a disaster, if you must evacuate, the most important thing you can do to protect your pets is to evacuate them, too. If it’s not safe for you to stay behind, then it’s not safe to leave pets behind either. Take action now, so you know how to best care for your furry friends when the unexpected occurs. Local and state health and safety regulations do not permit the Red Cross to allow pets in disaster shelters. (Service animals are allowed in

Red Cross shelters.) Know a safe place to take your pets. Contact hotels and motels outside your local area to check their policies on accepting pets and restrictions on number, size and species. Ask if “no pet” policies can be waived in an emergency. Keep a list of “pet-friendly” places, including phone numbers, with your disaster supplies. Ask friends, relatives or others outside the affected area whether they could shelter your animals. Make a list of boarding facilities and veterinarians who could shelter animals in an emergency; include 24hour phone numbers. Ask local animal shelters if they provide emergency shelter or foster care for pets during a disaster. Assemble a Pet Emergency Preparedness Kit Keep your pet’s essential supplies in sturdy containers that can be easily accessed and carried (a

duffle bag or covered trash containers, for example). Your pet emergency preparedness kit should include: • Medications and medical records (stored in a waterproof container) and a first aid kit. • Sturdy leashes, harnesses and/or carriers to transport pets safely and ensure that your animals can’t escape. • Current photos of your pets in case they get lost. • Food, drinkable water, bowls, cat litter/pan and manual can opener. • Information on feeding schedules, medical conditions, behavior problems and the name and number of your veterinarian, in case you have to foster or board your pets.

• Pet bed or toys if easily transportable. The ASPCA recommends using a rescue sticker alert to let people know that pets are inside your home. Make sure it is visible to rescue workers, and that it includes the types and number of pets in your household and your veterinarian’s phone number. If you must evacuate with your pets (and if time allows) write “EVACUATED” across the stickers so rescue workers don’t waste time looking for them. The behavior of pets may change dramatically after a disaster, becoming aggressive or defensive, so be aware of their well-being and protect them from hazards to ensure the safety of other people and animals. Watch your animals closely and See PETS, Page 17

Learn the types of disasters or emergencies that may likely occur in your area. These events can range from those affecting only you and your family, like a home fire or medical emergency, to those affecting your entire community, like an earthquake, flood or hurricane. Identify how local authorities will notify you during a disaster and how you will get information, whether through local radio, TV or NOAA Weather Radio stations or channels. Know the difference between different weather alerts, such as watches and warnings, and what actions to take in each. Know what actions to take to protect yourself during disasters that may occur in areas where you travel or have moved recently. For example, if you travel to a place

where hurricanes could happen and you are not familiar with them, make sure you know what to do to protect yourself should one occur. When a major disaster occurs, your community can change in an instant. Loved ones may be hurt and emergency response is likely to be delayed. Make sure that at least one member of your household is trained in first aid and CPR and knows how to use an automated external defibrillator. This training is useful in many emergency situations. Share what you have learned with your family, household and neighbors and encourage them to be informed. Print emergency contact cards for all household members. Write the contact information for each household member, such as work, school and cell phone num-

What do you have to do if you need to evacuate from an impending storm? Locate the evacuation route for your area and plan your evacuation destination. You are urged to shelter with family or friends, or at a hotel out of the evacuation area. Check your disaster supplies kit. Have a full tank of gas in your car. If you are ordered to evacuate, move valuables to higher points in your home; turn off gas, electricity and water. Bring in loose objects and furniture. Tie down storage sheds, boats and trailers and secure your doors and windows. Leave early, in daylight if possible, and proceed to your planned destination. Take valuables such as insurance policies, official records and your personal property inventory. Be sure to take cash with you, as

ATMs, banks and stores may not cash checks or honor credit cards. Remember, you will not be asked to leave your home unless you are seriously threatened. When you are ordered to evacuate, go immediately. Monitor television and radio news broadcasts for information updates. Purchase an NOAA weather alert radio to listen for immediate severe weather information year-round. Please note: Not all shelters may be open during a storm. Shelter openings are incidentspecific. Never go to a shelter unless local officials have announced it is open.

Steps for taking a home inventory: you’ll be glad you did it Special to Hometown News Natural or other disasters can strike suddenly, at any time and anywhere. Your first priority, of course, would be to protect your family and your property. But it is also important to protect against the financial consequences of a disaster. The key is to begin planning now. One common sense step you can take in preparing for a disaster is to conduct a household inventory by making a list of everything you own. If disaster strikes, this list could help you prove the value of what you owned, if those possessions are damaged or destroyed. This, in turn, will make it more likely you will receive a fast, fair payment from your insurance company. This will also provide documentation for tax deductions you claim for your losses. The following are suggestions for

conducting a thorough home inventory. Record the location of the originals of all important financial and family documents, such as birth and marriage certificates, wills, deeds, tax returns, insurance policies and stock and bond certificates. Keep the originals in a safe place and store copies elsewhere. You will need accessible records for tax and insurance purposes. Make a visual or written record of your possessions. If you don’t own a camera or videotaping equipment, buy an inventory booklet and fill it out, or make a simple list on notebook paper. Ask your insurance agent if he or she can provide one. Go from room to room. Describe each item, when you bought it and how much it cost. If you’re photographing or videotaping, have someone open closet doors and hold up

items. Record model and serial numbers. Include less expensive items, such as bath towels and clothes. Their costs add up if you have to replace them. Be sure you include items in your attic, basement and garage. Note the quality of building materials, particularly for such furnishings as oak doors or expensive plumbing fixtures. Photograph the exterior of your home. Include the landscaping. Make special note of any improvements, such as a patio, fencing or out buildings. Photograph cars, boats and recreational vehicles. Make copies of receipts and canceled checks for more valuable items. Get professional appraisals of jewelry, collectibles, artwork or other items that are difficult to value. Update the appraisals every two to

three years. Update your inventory list annually. Sound like too much work? Computer software programs designed for such purposes can make the task much easier. These programs are readily available in local computer stores. Most importantly, once you have completed your inventory, leave a copy with relatives or friends or in a safe deposit box. Don’t leave your only copy at home, where it might be destroyed. Do what you can. Taking even limited action now will go a long way toward preparing you financially before a disaster strikes. For additional information about disaster preparedness or to become a “Disaster Resistant Neighborhood,” contact the Brevard County Office of Emergency Management at (321) 6376670.

Special to Hometown News The American Red Cross recommends that senior citizens create a personal support network made up of several individuals, who will check in on you in an emergency, to ensure your wellness and to give assistance if needed. This network can consist of friends, roommates, family members, relatives, personal attendants, coworkers and neighbors. Ideally, a minimum of three people can be identified at each location where you regularly spend time, for example: at work, home, school or volunteer site. There are seven important items to discuss and implement with a personal support network: 1. Make arrangements, prior to an emergency, for your support network to immediately check on you after a disaster and, if needed, offer assistance. 2. Exchange important keys. 3. Show them where you keep emergency supplies. 4. Share copies of your relevant emergency documents, evacuation plans and emergency health information card. 5. Agree on and practice methods for contacting each other in an emergency. Do not count on the

Pets

From page 7

keep them under your direct control, as fences and gates may have been damaged. Pets may become disoriented, particularly if the disaster has affected scent markers that normally allow them to find their home. Be aware of hazards at nose and paw or hoof level, particularly debris, spilled chemicals, fertilizers and

telephones working. 6. You and your personal support network should always notify each other when you are going out of town and when you will return. 7. The relationship should be mutual. You have a lot to contribute! Learn about each other’s needs and how to help each other in an emergency. You might take responsibility for food supplies and preparation, organizing neighborhood watch meetings and interpreting, among other things. Another way to stay safe is to subscribe to Lifeline. Knowing that you can’t always be there when a loved one might need you, the Red Cross is proud to offer Lifeline. The Lifeline service allows people to get access to fast help, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year with the push of a button. Want to know what else you can do to better care for your loved ones as they get older? You can start by purchasing a copy of the Red Cross Family Caregiving reference guide and learn what you can do to improve home safety, encourage healthy eating and prepare for legal and financial issues. Information provided by the American Red Cross

other substances that might not seem to be dangerous to humans. Consult your veterinarian if any behavior problems persist. Emergency action plans for your family should include your animals – all of your animals. For information about disaster planning and emergency actions to take for livestock, horses, birds, reptiles or other small animals, such as gerbils or hamsters, visit RedCross.org, the Humane Society of the United States (www.HSUS.org) or Ready.gov.
