Get Ready To Go

Are you prepared for the next disaster? Don't wait until it is too late to begin your family emergency and disaster planning! Were you caught off-guard in the 2007 fire storm evacuation? Did you leave home forgetting important items? When a crisis strikes, or when you hear about it on the news, the time to prepare is over!

Its important to have a plan. Your family may not be together when disaster Go Kidsstrikes, so it is important to plan in advance: how you will contact one another; how you will get back together; and what you will do in different situations.Depending on your circumstances and the nature of the emergency, the first important decision is whether you stay where you are or evacuate. You shouldunderstand and plan for both possibilities.

Get Ready 2 Go provides the opportunity for individuals to learn life-long skills to enhance their lives and those in their community – in good times and bad.  James Beebe, owner and instructor of Get Ready 2 Go and Disaster Mitigation Services, takes pride in helping the community prepare for the worst by investing in themselves. “I have seen first hand the devastation and grief of those who were not prepared,” he RiceFierexplained.   A resident of Fallbrook for 31 years, Beebe has volunteered for fire departments, was a crisis counselor, and manned the crisis hotline for the Center of Community Solutions. 

Beebe’s students have ranged all the way from seniors, and parents with small children, to entire businesses.  “I have seen the disparity of those who wish they had been a little more proactive educating themselves for the uncertainty that life can throw your way,” he said.  “We offer choices and solutions rather than excuses which are the result of a lack of foresight and planning.” You can reach Beebe at 760-723-1338.
