Disasters affect hundreds of thousands of people every year, some with little to no advance warning. It may happen at your local Navy installation. It may happen to you. While the Navy, emergency management, and first responders are committed to helping those in need; assistance may be delayed during a disaster. As part of the Navy community, you have a role in planning for emergencies -- Be/Stay informed. Make a plan. Build a kit.
During the month of September, Rear Admiral Bette Bolivar, Commander, Joint Region Marianas and Governor of Guam Eddi Calvo came together with local leaders and the military community to declare September National Preparedness Month. Together, they rallied the community to prepare for earthquakes, typhoons, and other disasters natural and man-made that have historically affected the island, not just for themselves, but for the sake of one another, too.
When Admiral Nimitz said this in a speech at the University of California 22 March 1950, he recognized the resiliency of Sailors during that time and the important role each member of the Navy community plays in Navy and personal readiness. It is a sentiment that still rings true today of the 21st Century Sailor - empowered to prepare ourselves and our families to face any hazards with confidence and an outcome of success.
