About Do 1 Thing
Do 1 Thing is a non-profit organization that aims to build more disaster resilient communities. When individuals in our community are prepared, emergency responders can help more people. In turn, when people are more prepared themselves, they can help their neighbors. The Do 1 Thing program works because our unique step-by-step approach makes it easy for people to get started preparing for disasters and emergencies.
Our board is comprised of members from many different service agencies who work together to help people become prepared. This builds stronger more disaster resilient communities. Our day jobs are in emergency management, human services, public health and many other fields. Together, we have over 100 years experience in disaster preparedness and response.
The mission of Do 1 Thing is to move individuals, families, businesses and communities to prepare for all hazards and become disaster resilient.
Getting Started is Easy!
Being prepared for disasters and emergencies can seem like a big job. Many people don't know where to start, so they never start at all. With Do 1 Thing you can take small steps that make a big difference in an emergency. Do 1 Thing is a 12-month program that makes it easy for you to prepare yourself, your family, and your community for emergencies or disasters.
Emergency Preparedness for Individuals
Do 1 Thing is a web-based twelve month preparedness program that focuses on a different area of emergency preparedness each month, and provides a range of preparedness options for each topic. Every month has a low or no-cost option to become better prepared. We give you a choice of three things you can do, then you choose one. You can jump in at anytime.
Emergency Preparedness for Business
Do 1 Thing has developed a 12 month program to help you get your business ready by taking a small step each month. Unlike our usual program, it is important that businesses start at month one, and go in order as each month builds on the last month. We highly encourage businesses to take advantage of this program that we have spent a long time on.
