Do 1 Thing is a 12-month program that makes it easy for you to prepare yourself, your family, and your community for emergencies or disasters.
Have the ability to communicate with family members during a disaster.
Phones with cordless handsets won’t work in a disaster because they need more electricity than they can get from the phone jack.
Develop a plan so you can stay in touch with your family in a disaster.
If you are hurt and can’t talk, first responders and hospital staff may not know how to contact your family right away. If you have a cell phone, you can provide the phone numbers for your emergency contacts to first responders and hospital staff.
