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.

September is National Preparedness Month.  This year’s theme is “Don’t Wait. Communicate. Make your emergency Plan today.” The BRADD Citizen Corps and the Barren River Health Department would like to make emergency preparedness easy by providing the tools and resources needed to take four important steps: be informed about the different types of emergencies that can happen in your area and their appropriate responses, make an family emergency and communications plan, build an emergency kit, and get involved in community preparedness. Then plan to participate in America’s PrepareAThon!
