Staying Prepared!

As an all-hazards preparedness and response organization, Love City Strong is extremely busy during the Atlantic Hurricane Season. Spanning from June 1st, to November 30th, the 2021 season has thus far been mercifully calm in our particular region of the Caribbean. We remain vigilant by improving our existing preparedness activities, and expanding our programming so that our response is more robust and comprehensive.

 

Some of our ongoing preparedness initiatives include managing our inventory of readiness supplies, and hiring seasonal on-call teams to assist with wellness checks and debris clearing in the event of a storm. Additionally, every year we support the Department of Public Works with an island-wide sandbag distribution. Sandbags are a simple but effective method of redirecting stormwater and debris away from homes to prevent flooding. At the end of July, the Love City Strong team delivered sandbags to the homes of St. John seniors and residents with access and functional needs. 

 

Love City Strong is always thinking of creative solutions to potential issues caused by natural disasters, and this season we launched the “Ready in a Flash” program. Throughout the month of September, our Go Team assisted seniors in scanning their important personal documents to portable USB flash drives, ensuring that they have backups of these documents in the event that they are lost or damaged. Through this program we have assisted 30 households across St. John, and plan on offering this service every year moving forward. Preparing backups of important documents is just one simple task that can have a big impact for disaster survivors in the long run. 

 

The climate crisis continues to impact communities across the globe, and it is evident that preparedness is no longer a seasonal activity, but a year round necessity. We are committed to being an active part of a prepared St. John, and none of our ongoing or future programs would be possible without the continued support of our donors. We thank you so much for your generosity.
