Dear 100 Hour Board,

What are your wards doing for emergency preparedness? Seen anything at the stake level? Anything being ramped up in light of 2020? What have you seen in the past? What has been helpful? What hasn't? What would you like to see? Has there been involvement with the community at large, not just active church goers?

Dear CS,

My ward hasn't been doing more in 2020, but that is probably because the emergency preparedness guy in our ward has already been pushing about as hard as he can. He's very good at this calling.

I prefer a non-pushy approach. It helps me when I feel like they have valuable information, but I don't have to engage if I don't want to. Contrary to some opinions, this actually makes me want to engage more often. It also helps that he knows a lot about a variety of stuff, so I can go to him for things that I'm interested in (i.e. gardening tips).

I haven't heard anything from my stake about emergency preparedness.

I hope this helps!
