Eagle EMS engages in disaster drills in conjunction with the BC Office of Emergency Management and the C-CERT team at least once per semester.
“Through this process, our members are extremely well prepared and possess the knowledge to provide lifesaving care to members of our community under the most unfortunate of circumstances,” Wickersham said.
Wickersham urges the BC community to personally prepare for all types of emergencies, and encourages people to think along the lines of, “If I didn’t have power or running water for 12 hours, what would I want to have?”
Whether this preparedness entails taking the C-CERT course, packing a basic kit of supplies to grab on the way out of the door in case of a building evacuation, or preparing mentally for an event, it is vital that everyone be prepared.
