 Take 5 to Survive was created by Washington County emergency
 managers in response to residents basing their lack of emergency
 preparedness on three factors –not enough time, not enough money
 and a belief that disasters won't impact them. The program is supported
 by a Website and a series of 18 flyers that focus
 on different topics for individuals and families. The first flyer is a calendar
 that breaks up emergency preparedness into bite-sized steps each month,
 addressing the excuses of time and money.



 Neighborhood Ready is a program that keeps communities strong by
 connecting neighbors so they can work together to deter crime, prepare
 for and respond to major storms, earthquakes and other emergencies, 
 clean up their neighborhood and socialize. Connected neighborhoods are
 not only safe, they're fun. Organizing your neighbors, inventorying their
 skills, and identifying resources are components of this program. Use the
 Neighborhood Ready guide to connect with your neighbors by hosting a
 Neighborhood Ready meeting.

 Prepare! is a multi-year initiative created by the Cascades Region of the
 American Red Cross to save lives and livelihoods by preparing individuals,
 families, schools, businesses, and entire communities to bounce back from
 disasters of all types and sizes.
