PERC Preparedness Challenge
Posted on May 30, 2012
CHALLENGE # 1 of a 6 part series
The Peñasquitos Emergency Response Council (PERC), an organization formed in 2011, is dedicated to helping the 92129 community become better prepared and able to work cooperatively together if the need arises. Their mission is to assess the needs of the community and provide opportunities for education, volunteer recruitment, vetting, and training.
“We each need to do our part to prepare for emergency situations so that we are ready to take care of ourselves and our own families and then be able to assist our neighbors,” said Christina Waddell, Director of Community Relations for PERC. The group has offered to provide a challenge in each issue of 92129 Magazine that will, if applied, enable residents to feel more secure if an emergency were to come about. Challenges will range from simply developing an evacuation plan to establishing a 72 hour pack, to name a couple.
- Store enough water for your family for two weeks.
The accepted formula is 1 gallon per person per day. Do the math and then follow up. It is a good idea to purchase commercially bottled water and store it unopened, in the original container. Be sure to observe the expiration date. You can also fill food grade storage containers with water. They must first be thoroughly washed with soap and water and rinsed completely. They should then be sanitized using a solution of: 1 teaspoon liquid bleach added to one quart water. Swish it in the container and then thoroughly rinse with clean water. Fill and store in a cool, dry place.
Let Christina know your success with the challenge by contacting her at email@example.com. Visit www.perc4pq.org for information on the Council.
