Emergency Preparedness – 4-H Project Spotlight

Stephanie L. Butterfield, Customer Service Specialist – UI Extension, Washington County

  A new Emergency Preparedness project was started this 4-H year with our county Emergency Manager, Tony Buthman.  In this project, members explored emergency preparedness techniques and safety rules in various types of emergency situations or natural disasters.   
     At each meeting, the members focused on a new skill set that would be helpful in an emergency.  By the end of the 9-month long project, members have assembled a “just in case bag” full of various types of supplies and tools.   Topics covered during the course of the project were: 3’s of survival, family communication plan, first aid and CPR, shelter building, ropes and knots, fire building using various types of tinder, purifying water, map  reading,  communication systems, making survival bracelets, and quick and prepared foods.  
      At the end of the project, members will be doing a “survival day” where they will pair up and complete one of the above skills to help the whole team survive a mock scenario.
