Do you know what type of natural disaster is most likely to happen in your area? Don’t wait until a natural disaster hits to start getting ready. As a Marine Corps family, being ready for anything is essential in order to ensure those around you are safe.
Marine Corps Family Team Building (MCFTB) invites you to attend an Emergency Preparedness class and create a plan that works for your family. This class will go over the basics of what emergencies are most likely to happen in your community and help you develop your plan of action. Some things to think about are:
Having a plan is only half the battle when it comes to natural disasters. You’ll also learn about items you should have on hand, items you should have readily available in case of evacuation, and items for your car. Our pets are also part of our family, so knowing exactly what to do and what to pack for them will help you be prepared to keep your fur babies safe and out of harm too.
To find an Emergency Preparedness class near you, contact your local Marine Corps Family Team Building office. Remember, as Marine Corps families, we are always ready!
Hurricane peak season is from mid-August through October. Make sure you and your family are prepared in the face of a natural disaster.
It isn’t enough just to be ready in the field. Marines also need to be ready at home. Loved ones must be ready at a moment’s notice for any crisis response.
