The Emergency Preparedness Initiative (EPI)
Resource Center

The Emergency Preparedness Initiative (EPI) is an educational program and motivational campaign encouraging you, your family, and the community at large to prepare for emergencies and disasters. EPI is sponsored by Convocation and facilitated by the Menís Culture  of the Goodenough Community.

Goodenough member Tod Ransdell has gathered a wide variety of support reference materials from sources accessed on the Public Domain of the World Wide Web, to assist you in creating an emergency plan, such as provided in the American Red Cross Disaster Plan Calendar.  The primary Internet Resource for EPI materials is "3 Days 3 Ways", with resources on many other useful topics listed below, including articles, fact sheets, and other reference materials. We recommend you start by reading the First Things First section.

Resource Topics, Articles, and Helpful Reference Materials

First Things First
Learn what hazards can cause disasters where you live. Determine your familyís needs and how you can survive these hazards. Consider special needs populations such as people with disabilities and the elderly in your planning. And finally, our pets play an important part in our lives, so donít forget about your animal friends.

Quakes and Volcanoes

Earthquakes and volcanoes can strike suddenly, violently and with no warning. Learn how to prepare for these disasters before they happen, and what to do if you are caught in one.
