Do 1 Thing is a non-profit organization that aims to build more disaster resilient communities. When individuals in our community are prepared, emergency responders can help more people. In turn, when people are more prepared themselves, they can help their neighbors. The Do 1 Thing program works because our unique step-by-step approach makes it easy for people to get started preparing for disasters and emergencies.

The concept of Do1Thing entails doing "1thing" each month so that by the end of the year, you have a complete emergency plan. Our program breaks emergency planning down into small and easy steps to help alleviate the stress of doing everything at once. Once you have finished the program, you can go back and update what you have already completed.

Our board is comprised of members from many different service agencies who work together to help people become prepared. This builds stronger more disaster resilient communities. Our day jobs are in emergency management, human services, public health and many other fields. Together, we have over 100 years experience in disaster preparedness and response.
