For those in the local and regional communities, including emergency management officials, non-profit organizations and churches, businesses and individual citizens, who want to help your community prepare for any disaster that may hit, log into www.formidablefootprint.org . This free service allows you and your community to prepare for hurricanes, floods, snow storms, pandemic influenza, tornadoes and more.
And what about knowing which neighbors need help during a time of disaster? For this, there’s the Map Your Neighborhood program (http://www.emd.wa.gov/myn/index.shtml)
that’s very popular in Western United States and is starting up in our part of the country. These links are now permanent fixtures in the Training/Preparedness section of this website.
