Disaster Awareness of Bollinger County, Missouri


NOAA Weather Radio

  • Buy a NOAA Weather Radio and test it weekly. (The National Weather Service issues a test every Wednesday).

  • Discuss the types of disasters that could occur with the members of your household.

  • Locate a safe room or the safe areas in your home for each disaster.

  • Determine escape routes from your home and places to meet – one right outside your home and another somewhere else in your community (possibly at a child's school).

  • Have an out-of-state friend as a family contact, so all your family members can call and tell that person where they are.

  • Make a plan now for what to do with your pets and livestock if you need to evacuate. Animals are not allowed inside emergency shelters because of health regulations.

  • Post emergency telephone numbers by your phones and make sure your children know how and when to call 911.

  • Show each family member how and when to turn off the utilities (water, gas, and electricity) at the main switches.

  • Check your insurance coverage – flood and earthquake damage is not usually covered by homeowners insurance.

  • Stock non-perishable emergency supplies and a disaster supply kit that should include:

    • A three-day supply of food and water, a change of clothing, a blanket or sleeping bag for each person and a First Aid kit that includes your family’s prescription medications.

    • First Aid kitEmergency tools: Battery-powered radio, flashlight and extra batteries, work gloves and a fire extinguisher.

    • Important family documents in a fire and waterproof container, an extra set of keys, credit card, and cash.

    • Have a First-Aid kit purchased from a local supermarket.

  • Replace batteries, not only in your smoke detector but also in your NOAA weather radio in the Spring and Fall when Daylight Savings Time changes.

  • Take First Aid, CPR and disaster preparedness classes through your local American Red Cross chapter.

  • More Information and Emergency preparedness kits can be purchased from the American Red Cross website: http://www.redcross.org.
