PATRICK AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. -- Team Patrick-Cape promoted National Preparedness Month with a booth outside of the fitness center Sept. 18, 2015, at Patrick Air Force Base, Florida.
"The booth is fun a way for the Emergency Management flight to get disaster and emergency awareness out to the base populace," said Tech. Sgt. Aaron Burnley, and 45th Civil Engineer Squadron emergency manager.
This year's theme for emergency planning is "Don't wait. Communicate. Make your emergency plan today." Emergency planning includes development of evacuation plans and family communication plans in the event of separation.
During the month, each week will be focused on planning for a specific hazard: flooding in week one, wildfires in week two, hurricanes in week three and power outages in week four. The month culminates in National PrepareAthon Day Sept. 30.
