Are You Prepared for an Emergency?
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
This summer, Southcentral Alaska has seen quite a number of wildfires, earthquakes and most recently, flooding. This week alone a 6.3 earthquake was felt across the region and areas of our district were flooded by intense rain and homes on the Matanuska River are sliding off the bluff. We know better than to be totally surprised by these events but I wonder how many are prepared of us have done anything to be prepared for a possible disaster. I know I haven't and I should. We all should. Here is information for us all.
The State of Alaska has a whole website dedicated to natural disaster preparedness.
How can you prepare for an earthquake?
Alaska is also home for some pretty harsh winters. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention has a winter weather fact sheet that would be helpful to many of us, especially those of us who love winter outdoor activities.
We can never be too prepared, but knowing some of the basics can change the outcome of our circumstances if an emergency event does occur.
I’m Berta and I’m still listening,
