PRLog - Dec. 31, 2012 - ORANGE COUNTY, Calif. -- ORANGE, Calif. -- For 2013, ReadyOC (http://www.readyoc.org/), a public service campaign aimed at educating and empowering the Orange County community to better prepare for any emergency, wants to be a part of everyone’s New Year’s resolutions.

More than 82% of Orange County residents are aware that emergency preparedness is important, yet of these, most have made little, if any, actual preparations. In the quest to make preparedness a priority, nearly 200,000 OCer’s have made their Promise to Prepare (http://readyoc.org/promisetoprepare/index.html) with ReadyOC, but that’s only about 5% of the county’s population. Setting a clear resolution with deadlines and straightforward action steps will increase the likelihood of Orange County residents achieving their preparedness resolution. Ultimately, that translates to surviving and thriving after a disaster such as ‘the big one (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Z5ckzem7uA&feature=g-...).’ Below are the ReadyOC recommended five steps to achieving that resolution, along with the attached detailed infographic.




1.       Make your Promise to Prepare at www.ReadyOC.org – Once you make your promise to prepare, you are more likely to BE prepared.

2.       Create an Emergency Plan – Write out an emergency contact list with in-state, out-of-state and local first responder contacts. Map out designated meeting places depending on locations you frequent. Create evacuation plans for your home and identify potential local shelters (i.e. Red Cross shelters, churches, or schools) that you may need.

3.       Download the FREE ReadyOC App – Keep your preparedness information, kit checklist, family plan and emergency updates mobile.

4.       Build Your Emergency Kit – Compile food, water, first aid items, a flashlight, batteries, and other necessities in a transportable storage container.  Make sure to add personal items and copies of emergency documents, such as your birth certificate and driver’s license.

5.       Designate a Location – Identify a space in your home for your emergency kit that all family members can access and easily transport.
