A Preparedness Plan
Flint is located in the middle of Michigan’s “Tornado Alley”, but approximately 60,000 of its residents (about 60% of the total population) do not have a disaster preparedness plan. The Prepared is Protected Blueprint provided the city with a clear roadmap for engaging with its key partner, the Red Cross. Together, they worked to improve the city’s preparedness through their three step method: Get a Kit. Make a Plan. Be Informed.
As a former AmeriCorps member, Mayor Walling enjoys serving alongside community volunteers in clearing abandoned properties and creating new green spaces. He encourages community members to learn how to be prepared for emergencies and leads by example by participating in training himself.
