Operation Ready

ORimageCCF has launched Operation Ready, based upon the American Red Cross Ready RatingTM program, to equip Cucamonga Christian Fellowship to show God’s love by serving the community in times of disaster through protecting lives and property by effectively preparing for, responding to, and recovering from emergencies.

Our goal is for CCF to be prepared, but also for our members be prepared too. When Americans prepare and practice for an emergency in advance of the event, it makes a real difference in our ability to cope with disaster, and take immediate and informed action, which, in turn, enables us to recover more quickly.

CURRENT HIGHLIGHT

 

EMERGENCY KITS

Taking the time to assemble a home emergency kit, will help you and your loved ones respond and recover from emergencies and disasters. The Pacific Disaster Center explains how to prepare a home kit. Whether you buy a kit already assembled, customize a store-bought kit, or make you own kit, the American Red Cross recommends six basics to stock at home (a good rule of thumb is to have at least a two week supply on hand):
  • Water
  • Food
  • First-aid supplies (including prescription medicines)
  • Clothing and bedding
  • Tools and emergency supplies
  • Special items
 
Many of these items you probably have at home, you’ll just need to keep them in one place. Emergency tools and supplies, such as flashlights, first aid kit, and radio, should be kept in a tote bag or plastic bin. Emergency water and food should be stored in a cool, dry place, and regularly rotated into meals and replaced. Attention campers! If your family likes to camp, or has an RV, you already have cooking and shelter equipment. Remember to keep enough fuel on hand for your cooking stove to last at least two weeks.
 
Don’t forget to also assemble a personal emergency kit. The same six essential items apply here, only in smaller quantities. Think about how far you commute to work or school each day. What would you do if you had to walk home? What would you want in your personal “go bag” to make you comfortable? Keep this kit in your car, or in your office at work, as well as a sturdy pair of walking shoes.

FAMILY DISASTER PLANS

Creating a family disaster plan is the foundation for disaster preparedness. A family disaster plan provides the blueprint for safeguarding and sustaining your family during emergencies and disasters, keeping family members connected and informed, handling disaster stress, and taking effective action to respond and recover. Don’t be overwhelmed: just take it one step at a time (Isaiah 41:10):

Step 1: Make a Family Emergency Communication Plan
  • Just follow the simple steps at: ready.gov/make-a-plan
  • Make wallet-sized Emergency Contact Cards – Click HERE

Step 2: Make a Family Evacuation Plan
  • Draw a floor plan of your home showing escape routes.
  • Decide on a safe, familiar place where your family can go for protection or to reunite
Step 3: Practice Both Plans Before Disaster Strikes
