Coweta EMA director Jay Jones speaks on emergency preparedness at October Safety Alliance meeting
Emergency preparedness training is available free of charge to all Cowetans through the local Emergency Management Agency, and Coweta EMA Director Jay Jones spoke on emergency preparedness at the October meeting of the Coweta Safety Alliance.
"Have a kit and have a plan" was Jones's advice to the local safety professionals, and he told them he is such a fan of emergency preparedness kits that he has even provided starter kits for family members as Christmas gifts. "That's how much I believe in it," he said.
Jones said a kit can be as individualized as someone wants to make it, but he does recommend a kit include three to five days' worth of provisions, any extra medications that might be needed, and pet food.
He said it's important to be prepared to take responsibility for your own welfare following an emergency because of the chance that other assistance might not immediately be available. He jokingly called this "the YO-YO" effect, with those letters standing for "you're on your own." Click here to read more
