Emergency Preparedness

HELP / OK Sign:

An ‘OK’ sign can be as useful to first responders after an earthquake  or Catastrophe as a ‘HELP’ sign.

If Disaster Strikes…

Ideally, each household should store enough food, water, medications and batteries to hold out for several days before help arrives following a major earthquake or other catastrophe. To let responders know whether somebody inside needs assistance or can manage on their own, we urge people to make or obtain window signs that read “HELP” or “OK.”

You can print a PDF version of a HELP or OK sign here: Printable HELP-OK SIGN

Once printed place your HELP/OK sign back to back into a sheet protector and display in a window or door facing a public street visible to responders.
