Bite Size Preparedness

Bite Size Preparedness offers a basic individual/family online preparedness guide that is simple and easy to use, but its benefits are innumerable and potentially life-saving. In order to fully empower communities in times of disaster, our team of preparedness professionals believe it must start at the individual level.

Following a major disaster, emergency personnel who provide fire and medical services will not be able to meet the immediate demand for these services. Factors such as number of victims, communications failures, and road blockages will prevent people from accessing emergency services they have come to expect at a moment’s notice by dialing 911. People will have to rely on themselves and each other for help in order to meet their immediate life-saving and life-sustaining needs.

Our tool, which was created and is maintained by seasoned emergency preparedness professionals,  provides step-by-step instructions on how to do essential preparedness activities. 

Bite Size Preparedness is based on the belief that the fundamental responsibility for preparedness lies with every individual. By encouraging preparedness efforts, the effects of a disaster can be minimized. Our services will increase the overall level of individual/household disaster readiness, provide emergency skills that people can use in day-to-day emergencies, enhance the bond between government and community, and result in increased community preparedness.
