This is being accomplished through collaborations between Emergency Services Agencies, Local Government Agencies, Private Sector Organizations, Faith and Community Based Organizations, Media Organizations, Volunteer Groups, and local stakeholders. This “Whole Community” approach makes it possible for the collaborators collective resources to be efficiently and effectively utilized to ensure that their members, neighbors, and local communities are aware, prepared, and trained to be sustainable and self-reliant during disasters or other emergencies. “Whole Community Preparedness” leads to “Whole Community Resiliency” and a more rapid recovery period for everyone in the affected area. P.A.C. R.E.D. Volunteers are local citizens, businesses, organizations, and other community stakeholders who support and promote this Initiative by educating, training, and equipping their own families, neighbors, and community to be sustainable through the P.A.C. R.E.D. partner programs. PAC RED Mission To educate residents and stakeholders within their local communities on the importance of disaster awareness and preparedness by ensuring emergency planning, training and resources are available and accessible to everyone regardless of age, gender, race, religion or affluence. GETTING STARTED Preparedness begins at home. Knowing that your family is secure and has a plan to activate during an emergency provides the peace of mind to effectively help others. Then help to make your church, faith, congregation, workplace, business, school or other associations aware and prepared. All efforts lead to quicker resiliency and recovery for the whole community. Our Motto: Be Aware – Be Prepared. PAC RED RECOMMENDED STEPS TO PREPAREDNESS  Assess your home. Determine risks and needs in the event of an emergency or disaster.  Begin stocking emergency, water and food supplies.  Begin stocking your first aid kit.  Talk to family members and make plans for evacuation and reconnection after an event.  Get training in your areas of need and interest.  Determine how you can help and serve others in your community.
