Welcome to the Georgia VOAD

 

Disasters rarely, if ever, provide a warning. It is up to us to make sure that we are ready for any disaster

that may strike and take away some of our daily essentials. We strongly encourage you to take the time

to Make a Plan, Prepare, and Stay Informed.

 

 South Georgia 2017 Tornado support is still needed                   

There are over 250 homes that need help with debris cleanup as

of June 30, 2017 in the Albany, Georgia area.                  

                                 

May 7-13th is Hurricane Preparedness Week- prepare your family &

business for the upcoming hurricane season.

 

Don't Wait. Communicate about Hurricane Safety.

 

Prepare for Hurricanes Now

 

Promote Hurricane Preparedness Week: May 7-13 in your community

The Ready Campaign recommends using social media tools as a way to promote National Hurricane Preparedness Week, May 7– May 13, as well as throughout hurricane season.  You can either copy these messages directly or customize them to reach your audience.   

Follow the National Weather Service Hurricane Preparedness Weekly Themes and promote content online and in person!

 

  • Sunday, May 7th- Determine your risk
  • Monday, May 8th- Develop an evacuation plan
  • Tuesday, May 9th- Assemble disaster supplies
  • Wednesday, May 10th- Secure an insurance check
  • Thursday, May 11th- Strengthen your home
  • Friday, May 12th- Check on Your Neighbor
  • Saturday, May 13th- Complete your written hurricane plan

 

 

Think about participating in America's PrepareAthon! and the national day of action, which culminates National Preparedness Month on September 30th. The first step towards becoming more prepared is the most important.
