Your RQ Readiness Quotient
In recent years, the American people have been urged to "get ready" and to prepare for emergenciesâ€”from natural disasters to terrorist attacks. But no one has ever given the public a simple, comprehensive and consistent tool to actually measure how prepared they are. No one has ever provided communities and the nation as a whole with a practical "gauge" to assess their preparedness, recognize their successes, and identify gaps where more work needs to be done. Until now.
The Public Readiness Index (PRI) is a first-of-its kind tool for individuals, families and communities to determine and evaluate their readiness. See how you stack up against the national average and learn specific steps you can take to better prepare yourself and your family, as well as things you can do to encourage your community, schools, and workplace to be better prepared.
Get your readiness quotient - "RQ" - by visiting The Council for Excellence in Government at http://whatsyourrq.org/form.php?refcode=SantaRosa or visit the Emergency Management page at http://www.santarosa.fl.gov/emergency/disasterprep.html The importance of taking the RQ test is that we can track grades by zip code which may assist us in determining where future preparedness training and public awareness initiatives should take place.
