Oct. 13, 2010 - PRLog -- The effects of a natural disaster can often be devastating. During the past 30 years, disasters in Australia have cost the community at least $1 billion. This amount is likely to rise as the number of people affected by climate-related disasters every year is set to increase 50 percent by 2015. By the time you finish reading this letter; many people could have been injured, lost their homes, or worse, their lives because of a natural disaster. Often these disasters cannot be avoided, but problems associated with the aftermath of them can be, if we are prepared.
The International day of disaster Reduction, a day set up by the United Nations to promote a global culture of disaster reduction, including prevention, mitigation and preparedness, will fall on 13th October this year.
This date will also mark the launch of the “First 24 Hour Foundation”, an Australian initiative to secure the 303 - Family Safety Plan in every home around the world.  As your (manager/boss/business leader), I am proud to support this life saving event, and assist in the safety and protection of my family, friends and employees.
Have you ever thought about what you would do in case of a natural disaster? Where would you take your family? What would you take with you? Where would be the safest place to go if there was a tsunami/severe storm/bush fire? It has been demonstrated that most of us are not prepared when a disaster strikes in our own homes as we are in our work place where it is a requirement to have a safety plan, and exercise it regularly. It is critical that in the event of a disaster we should be prepared with a plan, instead of thinking “what should I do now?”
We only have to look at our own natural disasters such as Black Saturday; as well as recent overseas catastrophes such as the floods in Pakistan and landslides in Mexico, to see how important it is that we have a safety plan at home which  is practised regularly to ensure the safety of our family, friends and employees.
Why is the First 24 hour period after a disaster is so important?
When disaster strikes, the first 24 hours is the most critical time. Your chance of surviving a catastrophic incident has a higher likelihood of success during this critical time if you are prepared. Having a safety plan in place can mean the difference between life or death, sickness or health, security or chaos.
Why the 303 plan?
This Australian initiative is simple, easy to follow, and can even be a fun activity for you and your family to do together. Simply spend 30 minutes implementing your plan, and then every 3 months spend another 30 minutes exercising and reviewing it. This will keep it fresh in your mind so you and your family can react quickly and accordingly in case of a natural disaster. Every 3 months, email, text, fax and television notifications will be sent to everyone on the 303 plan list to remind them to take 30 minutes to practice or update their plan.

Where will the money go?
This is a common question asked of organisations. The First 24 Hour Foundation is unique, because unlike other foundations, their bank statements will be posted online so you can track exactly where your funds go. This transparency will allow you to see where your money has gone towards such things as training and research scholarships, helping support disaster response teams and provide funding for research and development.
As a valued friend/employee, I urge you to put the 303 plan in place in your homes.
