he City of Covington enjoys a vibrant sense of community. It is a place where local government, private

citizens and businesses are partners, working together to provide innovative solutions for the challenges facing the city as it grows. The city council believes that you can live and work in the same community, while keeping a rural feel with economic vitality. Since Covington’s incorporation on August 31, 1997, the city has grown so rapidly from 12,500 to 17,575 today. Covington is developing as a new center for commerce. It is a great place for jobs and businesses along with residential property opportunities including a wide range of single family housing from affordable to luxury. While the council encourages economic development, it also believes that the participation of social service programs at a local level are the true soul of the city, recognizing that quality of life is a necessity rather than an unattainable goal. They place a high significance on developing strong partnerships with the Covington Chamber of Commerce,

Emergency Preparedness

In the Car • At School • At Home • At Work Where will you be when disaster strikes? How will you find each other? Will you know if your children are safe?

Your Family Disaster Plan

Disaster can strike quickly and without warning. It can force you to evacuate your neighborhood or confine you to your home. What would you do if basic services (water, gas, electricity or telephones) were cut off? Local officials and relief workers will be on the scene after a disaster but they cannot reach everyone right away. Families can, and do, cope with disaster by preparing in advance and working together as a team. Follow the steps listed here to create your family’s disaster plan. Knowing what to do is your best protection and your responsibility.

4 Steps to Safety

1. Find out what could happen to you. • Contact your local emergency management or civil defense office and American Red Cross chapter and be prepared to take notes: • Ask what types of disasters are most likely to happen. Request information on how to prepare for each. • Learn about your community’s warning signals: what they sound like and what you should do when you hear them. • Ask about animal care after a disaster. Animals may not be allowed inside emergency shelters due to health regulations. • Find out how to help elderly or disabled persons, if needed. Next, find out about the disaster plans at your workplace, your children’s school or day care center and other places where your family spends time. 2. Create a Disaster Plan • Meet with your family and discuss why you need to prepare for a disaster. Explain the dangers of fire, severe weather and earthquakes to children. Plan to share responsibilities and work together as a team.

• Discuss the types of disasters that are most likely to happen. Explain what to do in each case. Pick two places to meet: 1. Right outside your home in case of a sudden emergency 2. Outside your neighborhood in case you can’t return home. Everyone must know the address and phone number. • Ask an out-of-state friend to be your “family contact.” After a disaster, it’s often easier to call long distance. Other family members should call this person and tell them where they are. Everyone must know your contact’s phone number. • Discuss what to do in a evacuation. Plan how to take care of your pets. 3. Complete this checklist. • Post emergency telephone numbers by the phones (fire, police, ambulance, etc.) • Teach children how and when to call 911 or your local Emergency Medical Services number for emergency help. • Show each family member how and when to turn off the water, Create a disaster plan with your family. gas, and electricity at the main switches. • Check to determine if you have adequate insurance coverage. • Teach each family member how to use the fire extinguisher (ABC type), and show them where it’s kept. • Install smoke detectors on each level of your home, especially near bedrooms. • Conduct a home hazard hunt. • Stock emergency supplies and assemble a Disaster Supplies Kit. • Take a Red Cross first aid and CPR class. • Determine the best escape routes from your home. Find two ways out of each room. • Find the safe spots in your home for each type of disaster. 4. Practice and maintain your plan. • Quiz your kids every six months so they remember what to do. • Conduct fire and emergency evacuation drills. • Replace stored water every three months and stored food every six months. Test and recharge your fire extinguisher(s) according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Test your smoke detectors monthly and change the batteries at least once a year. continued on page 21

Earthquake: Drop, Cover and Hold On!

Learn what to do during an earthquake, whether you’re at home, at work, at school or just out and about. Taking the proper actions, such as “Drop, Cover, and Hold On”, can save lives and reduce your risk of death or injury. During earthquakes, drop to the floor, take cover under a sturdy desk or table, and hold on to it firmly. Be prepared to move with it until the shaking stops.

Neighbors Helping Neighbors

Meet with your neighbors to plan how the neighborhood could work together after a disaster until help arrives. If you’re a member of a neighborhood organization, introduce disaster preparedness as a new activity. Know your neighbors’ special needs (e.g. medical, technical) and consider how you could help neighbors who have special needs, such as disabled and elderly persons. Make plans for child care in case parents can’t get home. Sample emergency kit: are you prepared?

Emergency Supplies

• Keep enough supplies in your home to meet your needs for at least five days. Assemble a Disaster Supplies Kit with items you may need in an evacuation. Store these supplies in sturdy, easy-to-carry containers such as backpacks, duffle bags or covered trash containers. • Water (one gallon per person per day) and chlorine bleach to purify it. Store water in sealed, unbreakable containers. Mark the storage dates and replace every six months. • Emergency food and beverage supply (nonperishable food and juices.). • A hand can opener, cooking equipment, fuel for alternate cooking and heating devices. • A change of clothing for each person in the family, rain gear, sturdy shoes. • First aid kit, prescription medicine, and extra pair of eye glasses. • Flashlights, portable radio with batteries, matches, candles. • Credit cards, cash and an extra set of car keys. • A list of important family information including the style & serial number of medical devices such as pacemakers. • Special needs for infants, the elderly, and disabled. • Sanitation supplies (plastic trash bags, soap, toothbrush and toothpaste, toilet paper, newspaper, a camp shovel.) • Keep important family documents in a waterproof container. • Keep a smaller kit in the trunk of your car.

Evacuation

Food and Water

• Be prepared to take care of yourself and your family for up to five days. • Take emergency drinking water from ice cubes, water heater, and canned fruits and vegetables. • Don’t drink unbottled water (including municipal tap water) until it has been strained with a clean cloth and treated. To treat water add ten drops of chlorine bleach to each gallon of water, mix well, and let stand for about 30 minutes. • Frozen foods will last from 48 to 72 hours if the freezer is full and the door stays closed. •Eat perishable foods first. •Discard all open food and beverages that may have been contaminated. • Cook on portable grills, but only outdoors. Have enough water for your family

Evacuate immediately if told to do so: • Listen to your battery-powered radio and follow the instructions of local emergency officials. • Wear protective clothing and sturdy shoes. • Take your Disaster Supplies Kit. • Lock your home. • Use travel routes specified by local authorities – don’t use shortcuts because certain areas may be impassable or dangerous. If you are sure you have time: • Shut off water, gas and electricity before leaving, if instructed to do so. for at least 3 days. • Post a note telling others when you left and where you are going. • Make arrangements for your pets and livestock.

Home Hazard Hunt

During a disaster, ordinary objects in your home can cause injury or damage. Anything that can move, fall, break or cause a fire is a home hazard. For example, a hot water heater or a bookshelf can fall. Inspect your home at least once a year and fix potential hazards. Contact your local fire department to learn about home fire hazards.

Utilities

Electricity Turn off electric ONLY if you see sparks or a fallen wire. Find the main circuit box, usually on the outside of the house. Locate the main circuit breaker or fuse. Switch the circuit breaker to the off position, or pull out the fuse. Have electrical service restored by a local supplier or contractor.

Hanis Irvine

Gas If you smell gas, evacuate the house. Don’t use the phone, light switches, or electrical appliances, or do anything that will cause sparks. Go to a phone booth or neighbors house and report the leak to the gas company. Let the gas company repair the leak and turn the gas back on. Water Find the water shut-off valve inside the house (located where the water line enters the building). Turn the valve in the direction of the arrow, usually clockwise. If necessary (and possible), shut off the main water valve outside your home. It may be next to the meter in a concrete box in the sidewalk. When the danger has passed, have water service restored by a local supplier.
