We asked our CERT volunteers how being prepared for emergencies and disasters has helped them through the COVID-19 pandemic. Here are some of their stories and testimonials.
From CERT Volunteer Angie Z: Emergency food supplies do not have to taste bad, just because you are planning for an emergency. Store foods that you and your family normally eat, including treats and snacks. There is one drawback, as CERT Volunteer Angie notes, "When disaster planning includes a stash of your granddaughters' favorite snacks, keep said stash out of their reach." Excellent advice, Angie!
