You could say that those of us who work in preparedness are a little obsessed with making sure we’ve got our emergency kits stocked and ready, our emergency plans up to date, and our neighbors are ready too. So we’ve got a few households in Georgia ready for a public health emergency (and a few others around the country – don’t forget about friends and family!), but how do we get the country ready? How do we get the government and other response organizations prepared? Check out our new Public Health Matters blog about how CDC participates in national exercises to assess and improve our preparedness.

When in Doubt, Throw it Out!
After flooding, identify and throw away food that may not be safe to eat. Throw away any food that may have come in contact with flood or storm water. Throw away food that has an unusual odor, color, or texture; If the power has been off for 4 hours or more, throw away foods in your refrigerator. Throw away any canned foods that are bulging, opened, or damaged. When in doubt, throw it out. Learn more about food safety following a flood.
