Since 1985 the CERT (community emergency response team) team concepts were in place for all communities to be engaged, participating and involved in planning, response, and recovery. Since 2004 and before community emergency plans were in place.
The opportunities are still here for all communities not only in the U.S. but globally. Globally in the U.S., Canada, Caribbean, Central & South America, Mexico, the nations of Africa, and other communities throughout the world.
The attached document ‘Community Emergency Plan. A Comprehensive Guide to Disaster Preparedness’ was created under the predecessor of CDEMA (Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency), CDERA (Caribbean Disaster Emergency Response Agency) in collaboration with the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

COVID-19 is your wake-up call for your community.
Plan to incorporate in your community. Communities can consist of 3 to 10 families. Keep your planning manageable with those you know that are involved in your community during good and prosperous times in crisis, and will be there long when the disaster\crisis is over. This is a community. A community working together.
Peace. Be safe, be prepared, stay healthy.
