Preparing for disasters and emergencies can seem like a daunting task; as a result, many people never get started. The City of Medford wants to provide our community with small steps that can make a big difference before, during, and after an emergency. Therefore, the City is partnering with “Do 1 Thing,” which is a program geared at encouraging each community member that it is easy to prepare for yourself, your family, and your neighborhood in the event a disaster strikes. Every month has a low or no-cost option to become better prepared. You can jump in at any time. If each of us does one thing each month, by the time a year has passed, we will have taken big steps toward being ready for the unknown.

Many of these disasters have already occurred here and undoubtedly will again. During a disaster you may be able to stay in your home but it could be without power or water. This preparedness guide and family workbook will help you to be ready for whatever emergencies may occur.
