Do 1 Thing to be be #OKready #AltusOK

As 2014 comes to a close, it’s a good time to begin planning your preparedness activities for 2015. Start the New Year off with an exciting web-based preparedness program called Do 1 Thing!  This 12-month program focuses on different areas of preparedness each month in a way that is inexpensive, easy, and fun for the whole family. The program also won in the Awareness to Action category of the 2014 FEMA Individual and Community Preparedness Awards. The Do 1 Thing mission is to move individuals, families, businesses and communities to prepare for all hazards and become disaster resilient.
To get started, click the topic for the current month, select an activity from the list of “Things to do,” and do that one thing! After following along for an entire year, you’ll be better prepared for disasters and emergencies. Participating in these activities can also count as participation in America’s PrepareAthon! so be sure to register.
Do 1 Thing also has resources available in seven languages, braille, large print and audio.
