CITY OF SEATTLE'S OEM POSTING ON NEXTDOOR
If you enjoy receiving these tips and reside or work in the City of Seattle you should look forward to receiving posts on Nextdoor from the City of Seattle's OEM. A couple of days ago Matt Auflick, Public Outreach and Education Coordinator for the City of Seattle's Office of Emergency Management Office posted a message indicating that he will be posting regularly to the Nextdoor App to spread the word about preparedness efforts.
When you take the time to read his posts or those generated by HT2, consider what you are taking away from these tips and look for an actionable item. Last week we shared tips on creating post interruption "pee" and "poo" stations. If you didn't already have the buckets, garbage bags and toilet lids we hope you went out and made those purchases or put it on a list of things to acquire. The simple step of even writing the item down on a list will enhance the likelihood of you making that addition to your preparedness plans.
Better yet, try to complete that action within 24-48 hours. After 48 hours it will be less likely that you will complete that action. Since we can't predict when the next interruption will take place, it makes sense to try to build our preparedness plans today, so that we are prepared for tomorrow.
For those of you that live or work outside of the City of Seattle, HT2 encourages you to encourage your local Office of Emergency Management to post for your area. If however, you are a Seattle resident or work here, you can sign up for the Nextdoor posts that will be posted by the City. Simply go to this link sign up.
Have a safe day and enjoy the weather this weekend!
