The BRADD Citizen Corps Council’s mission is to educate the public on being prepared for disasters. They accomplish that in many ways. They produce a quarterly newsletter with information on upcoming events, articles on preparing for certain disasters and information on past events. They also provide Community Emergency Response Team training that educates people about disaster preparedness and trains them in basic disaster response skills such as fire safety and suppression, light search and rescue, and basic first aid and disaster medical operations. This can be used to assist family, friends, neighbors and co-workers during and after a disaster. You don’t have to be part of a team. July is Heat Wave Awareness Month. We are in that time of the year that temperatures or heat indexes can reach 120 degrees. There are things that all of us can do to reduce how the heat effects us. We also need to be mindful of the effects the heat has on the young, elderly and our pets. They are more susceptible to excessive heat. Never leave a child or pet in a car!
