This guide was created to help families prepare for a child being home alone. Use these tips, technologies, and our refrigerator-friendly Safety Guide for Kids to prepare your kids to stay safe when they’re on their own.
For some families, there’s no way around older kids being home alone after school. This isn’t a new phenomenon, but what is new is a host of new technology and devices that make it easier for parents to keep track of and increase the safety of their children in the hours between school and when parents get home from work. And it goes way beyond just having a home security system……………..
Get your home and family prepared for this common natural disaster.
Floods are the most common disaster for homes in the US. Whether a flood is from torrential rains, flash floods, rising rivers, or a leak inside the home, a flood can cause serious damage to your house. If the horrible images of Hurricane Sandy or Hurricane Katrina are still fresh in your mind, you know just how powerful a sudden surge of water can be. According to FloodSmart, every home is at risk of a flood, but regions are usually divided up by low, medium and high-risk areas. Unfortunately, even homes located in flood-prone areas don’t have flood insurance, making the cleanup and recovery efforts even more stressful for homeowners.

You know you want to be a nurse, or a dental assistant, or a pediatrician. Helping people is a must, and no other career field appeals to you as much as healthcare does. But higher education can be expensive, and you need to work while in school, or maybe you have two littles at home who need your full attention. Balancing work, family, and a degree can be tough, but it doesn’t have to hinder you from a college education and a successful career working with patients in need. [read more]

The fact is, every responsible parent is concerned about their children’s safety. At the same time, it is important for kids to socialize at a young age and be able to have a certain level of freedom to grow and develop independence. It’s all about finding a healthy balance, which can be tough. While ideal, constantly keeping your eyes peeled on your kids may not always be plausible. The good news is, you can implement some basic safety rules for your children to abide by. This will help them become more aware of how they can protect themselves when you are not around.

The Alabama Office of Water Resources (OWR) is working with FEMA Region IV to identify and assess the risk of flooding in the Coastal watershed and to produce updated Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs). Alabama OWR has also prepared a Community Outreach Plan to assist local communities in communicating flood hazards and risks to the citizens within the watershed. This plan identifies a variety of outreach methods to engage, educate, and inform communities and citizens of the benefits of new Flood Insurance Rate Maps and their potential effects.
As a local official, OWR would like to keep you well-informed of the mapping update and outreach implementation process. The first implementation step of the Community Outreach Plan is the distribution of Information Flyers to the (1) General Public; (2) Development Industry; and (3) Lending/Insurance/ Realty Industry. The Information Flyer is the first of 5 flyers that will be prepared and distributed throughout the mapping process and will coincide with the following phases: (1) Discovery; (2a) Map Production – Engineering Analyses; (2b) Map Production – floodplain delineation; (3) Preliminary FIRM and Flood Insurance Study (FIS); and (5) Effective FIRM and FIS.
The Information Flyers will be posted to the OWR website and will be sent to your local floodplain administrator for posting on your local community website. OWR will work closely with your local floodplain administrator throughout the map update process.
