Presenting the 911Toolbox
The 911Toolbox is a
Survival Program Designed for All Ages.
First we look at suggested materials for young people 1-25
The 911Toolbox includes a hands-on learning tool (component) and is presented in 12 age appropriate modulesavailable here 24 hours a day and updated throughout the year on a no-cost basis.
After reading the 12 survival education modules here online, you can download the pdf versions from the n links shown at each of the M1 to M6 toolbox drawers. The original print documents can be optained by submitting an application to the FEMA warehouseor mailing your request to Jessup MD.
EMP Disaster Preparedness
Among predicted national and worldwide disasters the EMP Task Force on National Security .are the upcoming EMP (electromagnetic pulse) disruptions in our electrical grid. which are widely predicted but the timing is unknown. When disasters happen, the total cell, tablet, EBT, Banking systems and computer devices will become inoperable for multiple days with normal operation returning in multiple days to 18 months.
All citizens daily communication and methods of living will be disrupted.
Those with the 911 Moves survival education will weather the events much better than those who do not have this training.
The events will effect all municipal systems which your daily functions are reliant upon. We urge you to take action now by taking 3 personal steps:
1. Follow the 911 Moves Fire Prevention and Life Safety Education module and become prepared.
2. After reviewing the materials, fill out the educational request and the FEMA warehouse will send “paper” educational documents to your home on a “no-cost” basis.
3. Review the documents with your family and share them with your immediate neighbor. Also, we urge you to schedule multiple times to follow the survival instructions, then develop a neighborhood group that is committed to starting a neighborhood survival team.
The choice of becoming educated in survival disciplines is in your hands. The initial cost is your time and the cost in developing a survival program depends on “how prepared” you, your family, neighbor and neighborhood want it to be.
Through the use of web, pdf documents, interactive education and printed data, 911toolbox creates a pilot educational “survival coalition” with FEMA, Red Cross and National Service Corporation, and most importantly, community interactions.
The base elements in the 911toolbox pathway are shown in 12 Modules of the program.
Each drawer of the tool box is age specific and shown as:

READY FOR DISASTER
As with all sections of 911moves the central theme is dealing with emergencies when basic services and access to necessities are interrupted.
If there is a weather or other large scale disaster affecting our area, we may not have access to ambulance, fire or police services. If phone and electrical services are down we may be on our own to struggle to survive. It’s our responsibility to to be as prepared disasters or crisis as possible. That includes getting some basic supplies and information and community cooperation together before hand.
BOOMERS BE PREPARED
There are millions of Baby Boomers who are now classified as Seniors or will soon be while still active and somewhat unprepared for their new “Golden Years” ahead. We offer suggestions for remaining safe and healthy while surviving some potentially difficult and unsafe situations in your future.
Unforeseen events can create health and other complications.
“Young Seniors” may not realize that they have joined a group labeled “at risk” by medical and other emergency services. EMS providers are trained to expect that while seniors are unique individuals, they have certain qualities, as an age group that make them more susceptible to life threatening breathing, circulation, nervous system and muscular-skeleton injuries and illnesses. For these reasons we hope to help reduce the common obvious but overlooked causes of accidents like fires, falls, and the injuries that come with these situations. Those accidents often follow or are caused by medication complications and side effects. Often Seniors are not following their medication instructions perfectly and sometimes their physical situation changes since that med was chosen. Multiply the seriousness of their predicament if help is not on the way because of a larger disaster somewhere else.
Our goal is your safety and good health through some preventative techniques and methods as well as suggestions for enjoying active independent living. As the world around us becomes more stressful and demanding, we’re constantly working to provide and update our suggestions. We must be aware at all times that services we’ve come to expect and depend on can be interrupted by unexpected major disaster.
