How to Prepare for Storms

Be prepared for the storm.

This simple step by step guide edited by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will keep you and your loved ones safe.

  1. Make a Plan
  • Stock up emergency supplies: water, clean containers for water, food, health and safety supplies to last at least 02 weeks.
  • Write down emergency phone numbers at every corner of the house and in multiple locations.
  • Get a fire extinguisher and make sure your family knows where to find it and how to operate it.
  • Have a map of all the available shelters in your community and the various route you can take to get there from your house.
  • Gather safety items
  • Gather personal items
  • Make sure everyone in your family knows what the warning sirens in your area sound like.

Safety and personal Items :

  • First aid kit and instructions
  • Fire extinguisher
  • Battery-powered radio
  • Flashlights
  • Extra batteries fully charged batteries for your phones, flashlights and others devices.
  • Maps
  • Tools, like a roadside emergency kit
  • Flares
  • Jumper cables (sometimes called booster cables)
  • Having a GPS — either in your car or on your smartphone
  • Sleeping bags or extra blankets
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Wet cleaning cloths (like baby wipes) in case you don’t have clean water
  • Soap
  • Toothpaste
  • Tampons and pads
  • Diapers

   2. Build your community

Get the phone numbers of your neighbors and join your community chat group.

    3. Check your car

  • Fill your car’s gas tank. You may also want to consider making plans with friends or family to get a ride.
  • Double check your car’s emergency kit.
  • Move cars and trucks into your garage or under cover.

4. Evacuate or stay at home

If you need to evacuate:

  • Only take what you really need with you, like your cell phone, chargers, medicines, identification (like a passport or license), and cash.
  • Make sure you have your car emergency kit.
  • If you have time, turn off the gas, electricity, and water. Also, unplug your appliances.
  • Follow the roads that emergency workers recommend even if there’s traffic. Other routes might be blocked.

If you need to stay at home:

  • Keep listening to the radio or TV for updates on the hurricane.
  • Stay inside. Even if it looks calm, don’t go outside. Wait until you hear or see an official message that the hurricane is over. Sometimes, weather gets calm in the middle of a storm but then gets worse again quickly.
  • Stay away from windows. You could get hurt by pieces of broken glass during a storm. Stay in a room with no windows, or go inside a closet.
  • Be careful. Winds can blow debris — like pieces of broken glass and other objects — at high speeds. Flying debris is the most common cause of injury during a hurricane. You’re also at a higher risk of breaking a bone or cutting yourself on loose nails, metal, or other objects.
  • Be ready to leave. If emergency authorities order you to leave or if your home is damaged, you may need to go to a shelter or a neighbor’s house.

They are numerous advantages to using money orders. They are reliable and accessible. No bank account is required and they are extremely simple to fill out.

The first step is to determine whether you are receiving or sending the money. Depending on the organization, the form color could be different.

In this case, let’s consider that you are sending.

Write the name of the receiver it could be a company or a person. Usually, it is on the first line and it starts with “Pay to the Order Of” or “Pay to”.  Double check to make sure it is correct and spell accurately.

How Do I Study by Valery

Hello Community members, my Name is Valery Huson and this is how I study. I will skip all the general and practice tips and go more into the psychological  side

  1. Know your body

In my opinion, the first thing to do is to understand your body. Learn to know when you are tired when your energy level is high and when your energy level is low. By doing so you will be able to know your best study time and when not to study. For example my best friend studies every day from 02 AM to 04 AM, he believes his body is fully prepared to absorb plus there is enough silence. Moreover, during the day there is a lot of distraction and he can focus. Apparently, It works for him.

My study period is between 08h00 PM to 12h00 AM right before bedtime so I can digest all my learning.  During the day, I am just so busy.

So understand your body and find the right time for you to study.

2. Find your routine

Getting used to a certain routine, set your body in motion, creates a sequenced rhythm in your brain and psychological comfort. For example, before I study I usually meditate for 30 mins, and I get my dinner at 06:00PM, I go to bed at 12h00 AM and I wake up at 08h00 AM every day.

So find your routine and stick to it. By establishing a consistency in your daily activity it would serve as a catalyst for your empowerment.

3. Connect the dots

Throughout, the day gets surrounded by people in your field of study, engage in community activities that are related to your passion, watch shows, read articles that highlight your desired career path and industries of interest. Finally, mingle with mind alike people.

By putting yourself in such environment you will be able to relate what you study to real-world application and more importantly learn far beyond textbooks.

For example, I am part of our health and wellness club at my college and once a week I do social work at my church in the pantry. I am able to connect my studies to my community engagement.

Find a way to connect your own dots. Check out meetups groups, check events on Eventbrite, facebook groups, college clubs, find a mentor in your industry on LinkedIn, subscribe for an industry related blogs, magazines, volunteers in your city, in your community or abroad. They are some many ways in which you can connect your dots.

4. Stay focused

I know that expression resonates with you because you’ve heard this a million times so I wouldn’t elaborate more. But nothing really matters in life in you are not focused on your goals. Your goals have to be genuinely balanced between your short-term, mid-term and your long-term goals.

 

In conclusion, everybody has it owns way of doing things and achieving results. There is no wrong or right. As far I am concerned, I have found some stability in my results with that methodology and I am sure you will discover yours.

With Love,

Valery Huson
