Daily Preparedness Tip: Take a CERT Class
Something that everyone should do if they are interested in preparedness--take a CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) class. Many communities offer these kinds of 'preparedness 101' classes which provides info on everything from basic preparedness and basic medical skills (CPR, first aid) to basic emergency response (how to shut off your gas and water during a disaster) and other useful information about dealing with emergencies in your community. These classes are free, open to everyone in the community, and participants even receive some free preparedness gear when they "graduate" from the class. This is an interesting and useful way to spend a weekend.
