How to Help Disaster Survivors in Texas
Guidelines to ensure support is helpful

(MADISON) –  The people of Wisconsin are compassionate and generous. Many of us are looking for ways to help the survivors of Hurricane Harvey and the flooding aftermath.

Here are a few important guidelines to ensure your support can be the most helpful.

·         Cash donations to trusted organizations:

The most effective way to support disaster survivors in their recovery is to donate money and time to trusted, reputable, voluntary or charitable organizations. Cash donations offer these organizations the most flexibility to address urgently developing needs. With cash in hand, these organizations can obtain needed resources nearer to the disaster location. This inflow of cash also pumps money back into the local economy and helps local businesses recover faster.

 

·         Please do not donate unsolicited goods:

Items such as used clothing, miscellaneous household items, medicine, or perishable foodstuffs are not helpful at this time. When used personal items are donated, the helping agencies must redirect their staff away from providing direct services to survivors in order to sort, package, transport, warehouse, and distribute items that may not meet the needs of disaster survivors.

 ·         Individuals, corporations, and volunteers:

You can learn more about how to help on the National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (NVOAD) website: https://www.nvoad.org. The State of Texas is asking volunteers to not self-deploy, as unexpectedly showing up to any of the communities that have been impacted by Hurricane Harvey will create an additional burden for first responders.

The National VOAD has also noted the situation may not be conducive to volunteers entering the impacted zone and individuals may find themselves turned away by law enforcement. To ensure volunteer safety, as well as the safety of disaster survivors, volunteers should only go into affected areas with a specific volunteer assignment, proper safety gear, and valid identification.

At this time, potential volunteers are asked to register with a voluntary or charitable organization of their choice, many of which are already in Texas and supporting survivors on the ground. Volunteer generosity helps impacted communities heal from the tragic consequences of disasters, but recovery lasts much longer than today. There will be volunteer needs for many months, and years, after the disaster, so sign up now.

Disasters Don’t Plan Ahead. You Can.
September is Preparedness Month in Wisconsin

MADISON, Wis. — Wisconsin has been hit hard by flooding and tornadoes in 2017. That’s why Gov. Scott Walker has designated September as Preparedness Month to encourage people across the state to take time now to prepare before disaster strikes.

“Developing a family emergency plan is important,” said Maj. Gen. Don Dunbar, Wisconsin’s adjutant general and Homeland Security advisor. “Everyone should have a plan that includes information on where to go during an emergency and how to communicate with loved ones if separated in a crisis.”

An emergency plan should include:

·         How you will receive emergency alerts and warnings.

·         Where to take shelter at home, work, or school.

·         A family meeting place to make sure everyone is safe.  One designated location should be close to your home and the other in your neighborhood.

·         A contact list in both paper copy and electronic with current contact information for those individuals you may need to reach during an emergency.  Make sure you keep a paper copy in your wallet and in your emergency kit. 

·         Alternative methods of communications in case phone service is not available.

Consider text messaging during an emergency. During a disaster, phone service may be overwhelmed and unavailable. Cell phone text messages may still get through because they take less bandwidth to send and receive messages.

Also, calling long distance may be easier than making a local call. Ask a friend or family member to be your “out of town” contact. During an emergency, you can contact that person to let them know you are ok and that they can share that information with your family.

Developing an emergency communications plan is just one step to get ready for emergencies. Each week this September, ReadyWisconsin will highlight easy and inexpensive ways for you and your family to prepare for emergency situations. You can visit http://readywisconsin.wi.gov for more information. You can also follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
