Step 5 - Get Involved

Support community preparedness.

• Pre-affiliate – If you wish to volunteer when a disaster strikes, join a disaster response organization BEFORE a disaster strikes.
• Get and stay involved with community activities that deal with preparedness, such as the local Emergency Management Agencies, schools, businesses, and social groups.
• Make sure that groups and places where people gather have preparedness awareness including plans and kits.
• Help with awareness when possible and always be willing to volunteer at an identified Volunteer Reception Center during an emergency event.
