Now Do 1 Thing is starting to get national attention. CDC is recommending its use to other communities around the country. Victoria Harp of CDC’s Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response said, “Our Learning Office has highlighted the work of the Do 1 Thing project as a great example of a Whole Community approach to emergency management. This year our Communications Office is committing to the program.” CDC and FEMA will be promoting Do 1 Thing to communities throughout the year.
People from the Mid-Michigan District Health Department’s service area who worked on the project included Lynda Farquharson our Emergency Preparedness Coordinator, Jennifer Churchill who was our Public Information Officer and Larry St. George and Steve Lehman from Clinton County Emergency Services. Thanks to them and everyone who worked on the project and congratulations for starting a national trend!
