Lincoln Park CERT to Offer Three Day Disaster Preparedness Course

LINCOLN PARK, MI — Wayne County residents are invited to register for the free CERT Disaster Preparedness Course. Students enrolled in this course learn disaster preparedness, fire safety, light search and rescue, disaster psychology, terrorism, and more. The three-day course is designed to provide the basic skills needed in major disaster, which increases the ability people to survive until first responders or other assistance arrives.

The course begins on Friday, April 13, 2018 and runs through Sunday, April 15, 2018. The training will be held at the Community Policing Building, 1394 Cleophus Ave, Lincoln Park (Map). “In the early minutes, hours and possibly days of these disasters, professional emergency responders may not be able to reach all citizens due to the number of emergency situations or road conditions,” said Michael Parr, Coordinator for Lincoln Park CERT.  “Our mission is to train people to respond during disaster situations when professional responders may be overwhelmed by a large number of calls.”

Anyone interested in this course need to be over 18 years old, residents of Wayne County, pass a background check, and apply online by March 31th.   Students whom complete the course receive a Certificate of Completion and may join either Lincoln Park CERT or another city’s CERT program.

Be Prepared to Stay Safe and Healthy in Winter

Winter storms and cold temperatures can be hazardous. Stay safe and healthy by planning ahead. Prepare your home and cars. Prepare for power outages and outdoor activity. Check on older adults.

Although winter comes as no surprise, many of us are not ready for its arrival. If you are prepared for the hazards of winter, you will be more likely to stay safe and healthy when temperatures start to fall.

Take These Steps for Your Home

Many people prefer to remain indoors in the winter, but staying inside is no guarantee of safety. Take these steps to keep your home safe and warm during the winter months.

  • Winterize your home.
    • Install weather stripping, insulation, and storm windows.
    • Insulate water lines that run along exterior walls.
    • Clean out gutters and repair roof leaks.
  • Check your heating systems.
    • Have your heating system serviced professionally to make sure that it is clean, working properly, and ventilated to the outside.
    • Inspect and clean fireplaces and chimneys.
    • Install a smoke detector. Test batteries monthly and replace them twice a year.
    • Have a safe alternate heating source and alternate fuels available.
    • Prevent carbon monoxide (CO) emergencies.
      • Install a CO detector to alert you of the presence of the deadly, odorless, colorless gas. Check batteries when you change your clocks in the fall and spring.
      • Learn symptoms of CO poisoning: headache, dizziness, weakness, upset stomach, vomiting, chest pain, and confusion.
  • Don’t Forget to Prepare Your Car

    Get your car ready for cold weather use before winter arrives.

    • Service the radiator and maintain antifreeze level; check tire tread or, if necessary, replace tires with all-weather or snow tires.
      • Keep gas tank full to avoid ice in the tank and fuel lines.
      • Use a wintertime formula in your windshield washer.
      • Prepare a winter emergency kit to keep in your car in case you become stranded. The kit should include:
        • cell phone, portable charger, and extra batteries;
        • blankets;
        • food and water;
        • booster cables, flares, tire pump, and a bag of sand or cat litter (for traction);
        • compass and maps;
        • flashlight, battery-powered radio, and extra batteries;
        • first-aid kit; and
        • plastic bags (for sanitation).
  • Equip in Advance for Emergencies

    Be prepared for weather-related emergencies, including power outages.

    • Stock food that needs no cooking or refrigeration and water stored in clean containers.
    • Ensure that your cell phone is fully charged.
    • When planning travel, be aware of current and forecast weather conditions.
    • Keep an up-to-date emergency kit, including:
      • Battery-operated devices, such as a flashlight, a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Weather Radio, and lamps;
      • extra batteries;
      • first-aid kit and extra medicine;
      • baby items; and
      • cat litter or sand for icy walkways.
    • Protect your family from carbon monoxide.
      • Keep grills, camp stoves, and generators out of the house, basement and garage.
      • Locate generators at least 20 feet from the house.
      • Leave your home immediately if the CO detector sounds, and call 911.

Be prepared to check on family and neighbors who are especially at risk from cold weather hazards.

 

  • Take These Precautions Outdoors

    Many people spend time outdoors in the winter working, traveling, or enjoying winter sports. Outdoor activities can expose you to several safety hazards, but you can take these steps to prepare for them:

    • Wear appropriate outdoor clothing: wear a tightly woven, preferably wind-resistant coat or jacket; inner layers of light, warm clothing; mittens; hats; scarves; and waterproof boots.
    • Sprinkle cat litter or sand on icy patches.
    • Learn safety precautions to follow when outdoors.
      • Work slowly when doing outside chores.
      • Take a buddy and an emergency kit when you are participating in outdoor recreation.
      • Carry a cell phone.
  • Do This When You Plan to Travel

    When planning travel, be aware of current and forecast weather conditions.

    • Avoid traveling when the weather service has issued advisories.
    • If you must travel, inform a friend or relative of your proposed route and expected time of arrival.
    • Follow these safety rules if you become stranded in your car.
      • Stay with your car unless safety is no more than 100 yards away, but continue to move arms and legs.
      • Stay visible by putting bright cloth on the antenna, turning on the inside overhead light (when engine is running), and raising the hood when snow stops falling.
      • Run the engine and heater only 10 minutes every hour.
      • Keep a downwind window open.
      • Make sure the tailpipe is not blocked.

Above all, be ready to check on family and neighbors who are especially at risk from cold weather hazards: young children, older adults, and the chronically ill. If you have pets, bring them inside. If you cannot bring them inside, provide adequate, warm shelter and unfrozen water to drink.

No one can stop the onset of winter. However, if you follow these suggestions, you will be ready for it when it comes.

Arlington County Fire Department staff explain how important it is for citizens to act before professional emergency responders can arrive.  The worst thing you can do is stand by and do nothing!

Five Steps to Help Until Help Arrives

If someone is injured, the first few minutes are critical in helping the chances of surviving serious or life-threatening injuries. Would you know how to help them until professional help arrives? A new, easy five-step program will help you learn how.

The You Are The Help Until Help Arrives (Until Help Arrives) program can educate you on how to take action in emergencies. A multiagency effort led by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) and the Medical Reserve Corps (MRC), the Uniformed Services University’s (USU) National Center for Disaster Medicine and Public Health (NCDMPH), and the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Individual and Community Preparedness Division (ICPD) developed the base of the program.

FEMA and collaborating federal agencies decided to build the Until Help Arrives program after research revealed there are simple, easy steps anyone can do to increase the chances of survival for an injured person. Until Help Arrives is the first comprehensive, free-of-charge training program that broadly covers what you should do until help arrives.

According to a study by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, trauma, such as injuries from a car accident, gun violence, or a fall, is the leading cause of death for Americans under the age of 46. The study goes on to say that when people see someone get hurt, their first reaction can be surprise or shock and that response often keeps them from taking action to help.

“The idea is to empower people through training and familiarity to increase the number of people who will be that first person to move and make a difference,” said Andrew Burrows, Citizen Responder Lead with FEMA ICPD

A panel of medical doctors from the multi-agency group established the five actions for the Until Help Arrives program, which require no special equipment. These five actions are calling 9-1-1, protecting the injured from further harm, stopping any bleeding, positioning the injured so they can breathe, and providing comfort.

There are online resources at www.ready.gov/UntilHelpArrives that can help educate on the five steps. An interactive video set at an amusement park informs how to assist those injured in an accident at different areas of the park, including a runaway go-kart and a malfunctioning Ferris wheel.

“The idea for the interactive video was to introduce the five steps in an entertaining and fun way,” Burrows said. “Our approach was for people to learn the basics in a unique format. This will increase the chances for people to feel comfortable enough to engage in more web-based training which can also be found on the campaign website.” The Until Help Arrives Interactive Video challenges viewers to help virtual accident victims.

While the interactive video only takes a few minutes to complete, the web-based training includes a 25-minute video tutorial for those who want to learn more about how to help a person with life-threatening injuries.

“One of our goals is to generate a change in the perception of how people interact with someone who is injured,” Burrows said. “There is often the idea that if somebody is injured, private individuals should not get directly involved. However, people can gain the confidence to help with this program.”

If you would like to provide Until Help Arrives information and training for a group, there are a number of available resources including instructor-led training materials with a slide deck, supplemental videos, and an instructor guide with tips to teach the course. No qualifications are required. The materials are ideal for a variety of programs and individuals, such as scout troops, volunteer firefighters, Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT), and others who want to educate their organization or community.

“There are no requirements or certifications needed to lead Until Help Arrives training,” Burrows said. “It is ready-made instruction that is sponsored by FEMA and other agencies so that anyone can start using it immediately.”

To access the course and its three components, which are the interactive video, the web-based training, and the instructor-led training, visit www.ready.gov/UntilHelpArrives.

Why Disaster Preparedness is Important

Video Scenario

CERT members activate in their neighborhood and set up an Incident Command Post after a fierce storm has struck their community.   They assess damage throughout the area, and assist injured victims at the local community center using the skills they learned in a Disaster Preparedness Training until professional responders are able to arrive.

Unsettled leadership could hurt federal disaster response

More than a dozen major disasters, including winter storms, tornadoes and mudslides, have already hit the U.S. since President Trump took office. Recovery from disasters involves several federal agencies, which raises the question of what future support can be expected from an administration that has made its name promising major changes in federal management?

Last summer, a few thousand acres of forest burned in the foothills above Duarte, a town just northeast of Los Angeles. The charred remains of trees still stand among new vegetation that sprouted after a winter of unusually heavy precipitation.

The fire left loose soil, which, when heavy rainstorms hit in January, became mud that slid down into neighborhoods.

Extended deadline: Summer 2016 Basic Training Course

The deadline for registering in  for our Summer Basic Training course has been extended  until Friday,  July 8, 2016.

If a major earthquake (or any disaster) hits, do you:

  • have enough supplies for a minimum of 72 hours up to an entire month for all family members, including pets
  • know how to turn off the gas?
  • know how to safely turn off the power?
  • know how to apply first aid?
  • have enough water for all of your family and your pets?
  • have provisions for living outside your home for a length of time if the structure is compromised?

It is important to know, if a major disaster occurs, the LPPD, paramedics, police…WILL NOT COME! They will be deployed FIRST to major incidents such as collapsed buildings. That is why you constantly hear…You MUST be prepared to take care of yourself. In the CERT course they say…“The Greatest Good for the Greatest Number of People.” When you are trained, you are far more equipped to deal with your circumstances without needing aid from outside sources.

CERT members are trained in basic disaster response skills such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization and disaster medical operations. You will learn how to prepare for emergencies, what supplies you should NOW have in your house, how much food, how much water but most importantly, how to protect your family in an emergency! The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program is an all-risk, all-hazard training. This valuable course is designed to help you protect yourself, your family, your neighbors and your neighborhood in an emergency situation.

FEMA Urges Businesses to Use FEMA Smartphone App to Prepare for Disasters

Free App Provides Potentially Lifesaving Information Designed to Help Businesses, Employees and Families Before, During, and After Disasters

Washington, D.C. – The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is urging residents across the nation to download and use the FEMA smartphone app.  The app is designed to help businesses, employees, and their families prepare for a wide array of natural and man-made disasters, and can help affected Americans recover, should disaster strike. 

 According to a recent survey by Pew Research, 40 percent of Americans have used their smartphone to look up government services or information. Additionally, a majority of smartphone owners use their devices to keep up to date with breaking news, and to be informed about what is happening in their community.

Some key features of the app include:

  • National Weather Service Alerts: The app enables users to receive weather alerts from the National Weather Service for up to five locations across the nation. This new feature allows users to receive alerts on severe weather happening anywhere they select in the country, even if the phone is not located in the area, making it easy to follow severe weather that may be threatening family and friends.
  • Safety Tips: Tips on how to stay safe before, during, and after over 20 types of hazards, including floods, hurricanes, tornadoes and earthquakes.
  • Preparation Checklist:  Helps users put together emergency kits and develop family communication plans to determine how they will reunite with loved ones in the event of a disaster.
  • Maps of : Users can locate and receive driving directions to open shelters and disaster recovery centers.
  • Apply for Assistance: The app provides easy access to apply for federal disaster assistance.
  • Information in Spanish: The app defaults to Spanish-language content for smartphones that have Spanish set as their default language.

The latest version of the FEMA app is available for free in the App Store for Apple devices and Google Play for Android devices.  For more information visit https://www.fema.gov/mobile-app
