Our Unique Approach
The 1+8 Method is our own unique approach to disaster planning. It starts with creating an Emergency Action Plan (EAP) and then preparing resources under 8 categories that we have coined as the 8 Essentials
1. The Emergency Action Plan (EAP)
The 8 Essentials
When preparing a disaster kit there are 8 categories of essential items that you need to care for. You need to prepare items to sustain you for 3 days in an evacuation and 5 days for sheltering-in-place.
8. Special Considerations
Accounting for your unique circumstances is very important. This includes things such as those with disabilities or limitations, children, elderly, or other circumstances requiring special assistance. You also need to account for financial concerns having spare cash and copies of important documents.
