If you’re burned out from buying shirts and ties, fuzzy slippers and the Wii of the day, gift-giving can still be exciting and families can start a tradition of holiday and year ‘round safety and preparedness. There are many safety-oriented gift ideas that are affordable, useful and even fun.

Emergency management elves suggest stuffing stockings and wrapping boxes loaded with supplies for emergency preparedness kits or handy tools for household and travel safety. Local hardware and department stores and catalogues offer practical, valuable and entertaining items that any family can use in an emergency. Delaware Emergency Management Agency officials suggest that families and friends use the holiday season to share the importance of being ready for winter storms, power outages, floods and other disruptive events.

Children can be part of the planning team for creating a family emergency plan and assembling an emergency supply kit while they are giving and receiving gift items that will serve a purpose should the lights fail or the roads be covered with snow.

The gift of light is always welcome and the variety of flashlights and lanterns available is nothing short of brilliant. Flashlights that don’t require batteries are common and light devices can be found to clip to the brim of a cap, hang on a key chain or show up as a component of a crank- operated radio and phone charger. There are radios and portable lights that can be cranked or charged by the sun. Many of these include a cell phone adapter for charging, some even have a piercing siren for emergency use. Handy for a short charge in an emergency, shoppers can find a small, battery-operated cell phone charger that is powered by a single AA battery. Some LED lights, small enough for a key chain, are good for 100,000 hours and manufacturers claim can be seen for a mile.
There are all-purpose tools that can include a saw blade, scissors, screw driver, can opener and knife blade. Some even have a built in light. These tools are especially handy to include in a small emergency kit for your car.
For weather event listening pleasure, NOAA Weather Radios can’t be beat. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Weather Radio is a service of NOAA and it provides the voice of the National Weather Service. All-purpose and weather radios that have battery back-up and a hand-crank charging capacity are available in most local electronic stores and many department stores. They come in a range of affordable prices, many starting under $50 and can often be found on sale in discount and bargain stores. A weather radio makes a good companion to local radio and television bulletins and updates.
While families gather around the crank radio, listening for news of school closings, they can enjoy all-in-one self-heating meals that can be found in a variety of entrée types, from breakfast to meat and potatoes to vegetarian lasagna. For campers or folks who live in areas prone to power failures, those boxes can be wrapped and ribboned right along with the other gifts.
For those who might have to venture out into inhospitable weather, a zipper pull that features a digital clock and strobe light is one of many items that can be tucked into the toe of a stocking. There are also waterproof cell phone holders that can clip on a belt or basket for winter trekking or a trip to the beach.
If flashlights powered by a good shake and the siren in the weather radio aren’t enough to keep the kids amused, there are small, portable versions of games such as Scrabble and checkers that can go with the family should evacuation to a shelter be necessary. And who doesn’t want another roll of duct tape? If you don’t need to tape up a cracked window or pipe right away, youngsters can resole sneakers or make a vest.
Although gallon jugs of water are a bit bulky to tote as gifts, collapsible plastic jugs ready for filling when storms approach can be wrapped and presented for any holiday.

Even though unwrapping a smoke alarm may be about as exciting as finding that quality manual can opener in the stocking, one can save your life and the other can give you access to soup for you and pet food for Fideaux if the electric is out.
Being prepared for emergencies is serious stuff, whether weather related or another category of disruptive event, but DEMA officials remind the public that you can have fun with a serious subject. Planning and assembling supplies for emergencies can be a positive group activity for families. A caring gift of emergency supplies can be assembled for those in need. Children can take a role and be an integral part of the team as the entire family creates a plan for safety and peace of mind.
Be imaginative, be creative, but be safe and prepared this holiday season. Remember, every household should have supplies to sustain people and pets for up to 72 hours in case of emergencies that impede travel and interrupt power.
For more information on creating a family emergency plan, the DEMA website, has material on Family Emergency Preparedness and preparing for coastal storms. A cooperative program of DEMA and the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) is available free of charge for groups who would like a presentation on household emergency preparedness. DEMA certified volunteers conduct the presentations and demonstrate an example of an emergency supply kit. The Federal Emergency Management Agency website also has information on disaster plans, emergency preparedness checklists and other related safety and preparedness topics.

Prepared Yourself for Winter Storms and Extreme Cold

Add the following supplies to your disaster supplies kit:

  • Rock salt to melt ice on walkways
  • Sand to improve traction
  • Snow shovels and other snow removal equipment.

Prepare your home and family

  • Prepare for possible isolation in your home by having sufficient heating fuel; regular fuel sources may be cut off. For example, store a good supply of dry, seasoned wood for your fireplace or wood-burning stove.

  • Winterize your home to extend the life of your fuel supply by insulating walls and attics, caulking and weather-stripping doors and windows, and installing storm windows or covering windows with plastic.

  • Winterize your house, barn, shed or any other structure that may provide shelter for your family, neighbors, livestock or equipment. Clear rain gutters; repair roof leaks and cut away tree branches that could fall on a house or other structure during a storm.

  • Insulate pipes with insulation or newspapers and plastic and allow faucets to drip a little during cold weather to avoid freezing.

  • Keep fire extinguishers on hand, and make sure everyone in your house knows how to use them. House fires pose an additional risk, as more people turn to alternate heating sources without taking the necessary safety precautions.

  • Learn how to shut off water valves (in case a pipe bursts).

  • Know ahead of time what you should do to help elderly or disabled friends, neighbors or employees.

  • Hire a contractor to check the structural ability of the roof to sustain unusually heavy weight from the accumulation of snow - or water, if drains on flat roofs do not work.

FEMA Director Prepares Himself for Disaster

Amateur Radio Planning for Participation in Regional Exercise

Amateur Radio organizations in Delaware are planning for inclusion in the FEMA Region III Operation Hotwire exercising coming up this month.  Emergency Communicators all across the State have been working with their supporting agencies to prepared for this exercise.  For the exercise, there are plans for amateur radio operators to staff each of the county emergency operations centers, hospitals, and the Delaware EOC.  One special piece about this exercise compared to others in the past is the regional aspect of this.  Evaluators will be testing a significant portion of the exercise without conventional communications, which will require amateur radio to build a communications link between Delaware and Maryland.  Amateur radio will be up to the challenge when required!  Stay tuned for the report of how the exercise went after it happens later in October.

Great Website for Storm Tracking

For those of you interested in keeping up to date on the tropical weather we have been experiencing, check out  This website is very interactive allowing you to look at all storms in the area, wind patterns and official National Weather Service data.

Friday, September 5, 2008


      As the 2008 hurricane season continues, Tropical Storm Hanna is the eighth named storm and the first to impose a potential threat to Delaware. Emergency Management officials encourage the public to use the time before the storm reaches the Delmarva to review their emergency plans and supplies.
      According to the National Weather Service, Hanna is not expected to be hurricane strength by the time it reaches Delaware, however, steady rains may start as early as predawn Saturday morning. The rains are expected to continue through Saturday coupled with increasing winds that could be 30 to 40 miles an hour in strength, gusting up to 50 in some coastal areas.
      Throughout the state, emergency management officials and related partners in preparedness and response are monitoring the storm’s progress together through conference calls with the National Weather Service. At this time, there are no watches or warnings regarding Hanna on the Delmarva, but the public is urged to follow the storm’s approach and plan accordingly for personal safety and protection of property.
      For tips on a family emergency plan, including items for a supply kit, and plans for pets, information is available on,, and
      Included in basic supplies are radios and flashlights that are battery powered or powered by cranking or shaking.    A National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) weather radio is handy for 24-hour storm information. As a precaution, families should at all times have enough water and non-perishable food to last for at least three days for each family member, including pets.
      Moving outdoor and porch furniture and unsecured lawn ornaments into a garage or shelter will keep them from being damaged or from becoming projectiles if high winds accompany the storm.
      It is wise to have some extra cash on hand and to keep vehicles gassed up. Although widespread flooding is not anticipated  with Tropical Storm Hanna, a Flood Watch has been issued for parts of northern Delaware for Saturday afternoon through Saturday night. Motorists are reminded that they should never attempt to drive through a flooded area or where there is enough water on the road to restrict visibility of the road surface.
      Delaware Emergency Management Agency, along with other state and Delmarva agencies and organizations will continue to monitor the storm throughout the weekend and provide information for the safety of the public.

Eagle Scout & CERT

Citizen Corps would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Robert Taft McConkie who successfully passed his Eagle Scout Board of Review! Taft ‘s service project was centered around the Boy Scout Motto “Be Prepared” and having taken the Community Emergency Response Training, he thought this would be a benefit for Goldey Beacom College, where he attends school and lives. The Board was impressed that it involved emergency training--a perfect fit with the Scout Motto, "Be Prepared”

Taft took on this project and coordinated all efforts with the State CERT team which included recruiting, logistics and support. Prior to the training day, Taft organized a group of seven volunteers to assemble approx. 100, two-pocket, training folders at Delaware Emergency Management Agency in Smyrna (31 July 2007). The folders were used for the Goldey-Beacom CERT training and will be used in other classes throughout the state.

The result was a CERT training day (22 August 2007) for ten College employees (all of whom reside on campus). Taft stated, “while most of these employees had received basic first aid and fire safety training, preparation for natural or man-made disasters of a larger scale, such as a hurricane or terrorist attack, had not been provided. CERT provided each participant with a backpack of supplies (gloves, mask, flashlight, whistle, radio, etc.) to be kept on hand for emergency use and training in triage, disaster preparedness, terrorism, cribbing, weather disasters, search and rescue, and utility safety.”

A few weeks after the CERT training, Taft noted “we had a shooting incident on campus, it was a vivid reminder that awful, unexpected events can and do happen, and that it is critical, as Scouts know, to “be prepared.”
