Learning from disasters is an important part of sustainable community, safe families and environmental awareness.

Limited Fire Fighting Resources...Always!

"However, what I've seen is that there are never enough resources, never quick-enough response, never enough firefighters and never enough aircraft." Curtis C.

Fires, tornadoes, flash floods, bee attacks -- nature has a way of delivering very fast impacts. Fire is no exception.

Our neighbors in Northern California must be shell shocked that they could have 70 fires at one time...and dealing with that kind of disaster leaves even the professionals numbed by the overwhelming challenge.

What can we learn from these devastating natural disasters?

  • Reciprocal Relationships are a vital part of community safety.

  • There will be loss.

  • The earth is a fragile, powerful, constantly changing environment. And we are never totally safe.

  • High risk choices and behavior just aren't smart...

  • Forethought cannot be overly emphasized.

People in the current disaster do not have the emotional wherewithal to contemplate such lessons -- but the rest of us, those who went through disasters in the past and observe the current disaster with emotional memories, empathy and awe coupled with fear-- we DO have the wherewithal to learn from the disaster.

  • We can take precautions in our own home. Our own neighborhood.

  • We can volunteer for a community disaster service.

  • We can develop our family emergency plan. And supplies.

We can study the disaster maps and learn what to watch out for before we choose where to buy that next home. (Hopefully, not in the line of high risk dangers that are known, controlled and strongly warned against.)

And we can donate something to help our neighbors, the hard working disaster crews at the site of the current disaster -- as well as those in our own community who stand ready to help us next time....with adequate manpower and the proper equipment!

Together, with smarts, caring, and participation, we can be a little safer, a little greener, a little more neighborly.
