National Preparedness Month – Best Practices

National Preparedness Month 

As we have all learned, being prepared for a pandemic is very important. The more people that are prepared, the less panic buying will go on. National Preparedness Month focuses on preparing as many people as possible.

National Preparedness Month focuses on the essentials

How To Prepare For A Pandemic ( Ready.Gov)

– Stock up on emergency food and water (this will help avoid panic buying). Here at ReadyWise, we recommend having at least 1 month’s worth of food and water stored up in case of emergency.

– Stock up on cleaning supplies.

– Have an extra month’s worth of any prescription drugs you are taking.

– Stock up on nonprescription drugs or other health supplies such as pain relievers, cold and flu medicines, cough medicine, vitamins, stomach remedies and fluids with electrolytes.

– Have extra copies of your health records stored in a safe place that is easily accessible.

– Have a plan ready in case one of your family members gets sick. How would they be cared for and where would they stay.

What To Do During A Pandemic ( Ready.Gov)

– “Avoid close contact with people who are sick.”

– Stay home and avoid others when you are feeling sick.

– Wash your hands.

– Avoid touching your face.

– Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue before coughing or sneezing.

– “Practice other good health habits. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food.”
