Ready Kids - How Delhi's Youth can be leaders in Emergency Preparedness

Posted: 01/10/14

The Federal Emergency Management Adminstration (FEMA) offers basic advice on preparing for floods, heavy snow, power outages and other emergnecies that can affect Delhi. Through their Ready Kids website (http://www.ready.gov/kids), guidance is provided to help youth take a leading role in preapring their familes for emergencies. Below are FEMA's receommendations for assembling a kit of basic items your household may need in the event of an emergency (taken from http://www.ready.gov/document/family-supply-list)

Family Supply List

Emergency Supplies:
Water, food, and clean air are important things to have if an emergency happens. Each family or individual's kit should be customized to meet specific needs, such as medications and infant formula. It should also be customized to include important family documents.

Recommended Supplies to Include in a Basic Kit:
- Water, one gallon of water per person per day, for drinking and sanitation
- Food, at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food
- Battery-powered radio and a NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert, and extra batteries for both
- Flashlight and extra batteries
- First Aid kit
- Whistle to signal for help
- Infant formula and diapers, if you have an infant
- Moist towelettes, garbage bags and plastic ties for personal sanitation
- Dust mask or cotton t-shirt, to help filter the air
- Plastic sheeting and duct tape to shelter-in-place
- Wrench or pliers to turn off utilities
- Can opener for food (if kit contains canned food)

Clothing and Bedding:
If you live in a cold weather climate, you must think about warmth. It is possible that the power will be out and you will not have heat. Rethink your clothing and bedding supplies to account for growing children and other family changes. One complete change of warm clothing and shoes per person, including:
- A jacket or coat
- Long pants
- A long sleeve shirt
- Sturdy shoes
- A hat and gloves
- A sleeping bag or warm blanket for each person

Family Supply List (continued)

Below are some other items for your family to consider adding to its supply kit. Some of these items, especially those marked with a * can be dangerous, so please have an adult collect these supplies.

Shared Services Update

Posted: 03/18/13

We are happy to announce that the Town, Village and the school will be entering into a new agreement that will allow skating at the site of Delhi's former pool.  We expect to offer skating in February 2014. 

The shared services committee has been studying Delhi's comprehensive plan to find ways to bring some of the plan's goals to reality.  It will take some time but with the concerted efforts of the Town and Village we feel confident many changes can be made.

We have been discussing plans to form a new recreation department between the Village and Town that would be responsible for maintaining the parks and playground as well as hiking and biking trails and the new swimming pool.  We hope to offer more recreation opportunities for the residence of Delhi. 

The committee has found that by having open communication between the Village and Town, we have been able to work through many of the old issues that once divided us.  The members of the committee feel there is only one Delhi and we all are a part of it. 

Should anyone have a concern or idea for the shared services committee, please feel free to contact a member of the committee.

Welcome
