Our public policies dictate much of our society's ability to be properly prepared for an emergency. Therefore, it is vital that we hold public-policy makers responsible for the health of our communities. Attend public councils, ask questions, and be an active participant in the electoral process.
If you feel you are capable, and you want to be a positive influence on the processes that go into creating a healthy community that is resilient, consider running for public office. You have the resiliency, you have the ability, now go be a Force for Health!
