MedFlight911 Air Ambulance Gets Ready for National Preparedness Month

Do you know what you'd do if you were faced with an emergency – like a hurricane, tornado, wildfire or other disaster? It's a scary thought, but it's an important issue to consider. Since September is National Preparedness Month, I've been spending some time considering my own disaster response plans, both at home and at the MedFlight911 air ambulance offices. I came up with a few steps I could take to be better prepared, so I thought I'd share them with you today.

Everyone should take some basic steps to prepare for an emergency. That doesn't necessarily mean building a bunker in your basement, but it should involve more than having just a couple of bottles of water and a flashlight stuck in your closet. A basic emergency kit should include:

  • Water
  • Nonperishable food
  • First aid supplies
  • Flashlight
  • Batteries
  • Battery-powered or wind-up radio

Other useful items could include a water filter or treatment drops, emergency flares, a fire extinguisher, blankets, and dust masks. You can customize your kit based on the size of your family and where you live. (Those who live in a cold climate, for example, are more likely to need blankets and warm clothing.)

It may also be a good idea to keep a few emergency supplies in your car, since there's no guarantee that you'll be at home if disaster strikes. Water, a small amount of cash, a first aid kit, and flares may all be useful. Car emergency kits are especially important if you live in or are traveling to a more isolated area.

If you're a business owner, you also need to be prepared for the worst, whether you're an air ambulance provider like MedFlight911 or in another industry. That means having proper insurance, backing up important files or documents and storing the backups off site, and knowing how you'll respond in case of emergency (including a plan for keeping employees safe). Up to 40 percent of small businesses never reopen after a disaster, according to FEMA, so planning ahead just makes good business sense.

To get more on how to prepare for emergencies, you can visit ready.gov.

As an advanced air ambulance provider, the staff here at MedFlight911 deals with crisis on a daily basis. But National Preparedness Month reminds us that it's just as important to be prepared to manage the unexpected in our own lives as it is to be able to help other people. After all, if a disaster shut us down, we wouldn't be able to help those who need it most. That's why we've taken steps to prepare for the unexpected. We encourage you to do the same!
