A disaster like Superstorm Sandy reminds us of the importance of emergency preparedness, but we quickly return to our regular routine and neglect to prepare. All nonprofits should think through their role in the event of a disaster—is it important to continue to offer services? Will people in your community turn to you for help? Emergency preparedness can be overwhelming, so it is important to break it down into manageable steps and keep your efforts positive. Collaborating Agencies Responding to Disasters (CARD) is a nonprofit with a mission to prepare other nonprofits and those serving vulnerable communities for disaster. Visit their website for fear-free, culturally appropriate resources and easy steps to prepare. Their site is available in 53 languages, and the resources are accessible and free.
