Investigate Options

 

Week 6

How have other vulnerable communities handled disaster situations similar to those we face in the USVI? In Week 6 participants explored tested solutions to storm related problems. We learned to:

  • Prioritize: Things can get chaotic if you don’t plan ahead! We weighed options and considered priorities and created a Personal Hurricane Preparedness Plan.

  • Hydrate Safely: Clean drinking water is critical. We learned how to make sure drinking water is safe after a storm so our families hydrate with confidence knowing that their water is ok to drink. 

  • Get Inspired: Learn from others how to develop Community Transfer Projects that could work in the USVI.

  • Find Our Voice: We learned how to use our personal stories to inspire others to be better prepared for future storms.
