Be Informed, Make a Plan,
Build a Kit
Bello Machre is ready and has a plan to respond to emergencies that could affect our residents, our employees, and our families.
The myth is that “I don’t need to worry about disasters where I live.”
Emergency preparedness is for EVERYONE. Most communities may be impacted by several types of hazards during a lifetime. Knowing what to do before, during, and after an emergency is a critical part of being prepared and may make all the difference when seconds count.
Bello Machre’s Emergency Preparedness plans include natural disasters, technological and accidental hazards, terrorist hazards, pandemics, and home fires. Plans and protocols for sheltering, evacuation, communications, supply kits, and emergency alerts are in place, practiced and kept up-to-date.
Jennifer, Connie’s niece, was born with cerebral palsy and complex developmental disabilities. She lived at home with Mom for all of her twenty-six years. They were inseparable.
When Mom suddenly passed away, Jennifer’s life was thrown into chaos. Fortunately, her Aunt Connie had heard about Bello Machre.
