Emergency Preparedness

Preparedness Month

September is National Preparedness Month! 

The City celebrates locally by having our own Community Preparedness Month.

Are you, your family, your neighborhood, your business, prepared for a natural or human-caused disaster? 

Join us by taking a few simple steps this month to increase your level of preparedness and to help collectively increase our community's capacity to respond to and recover from an emergent event. 

This week (September 10-16), the focus is on planning to help your neighbors and community. You can access free resources to help you get started by clicking on the links below!
Take Until Help Arrives training. This short, on-line course will teach you basic trauma skills you might need to help yourself and others survive an injury by taking a few simple steps before first responders arrive! There are child and adult focused trainings available via the link. 
Participate in the Map Your Neighborhood Program. Learn the 9 steps to take immediately following a disaster to secure your home and protect your neighborhood. Contact the Bainbridge Island Fire Department to get started today!
