Do1Thing in August: Get Involved
Make your community stronger by getting trained and getting involved.
Isolated individuals are more vulnerable during and after a disaster. They are less likely to ask for help or follow emergency instructions.
Scout troops, service clubs, residential associations, communities of faith—almost any organization you belong to can become a partner in emergency preparedness.
There are many places to volunteer in your community. Many police and fire departments use volunteers to help with special projects, events, or program. The American Red Cross, Salvation Army, and other organizations train volunteers to work in disasters.
