Doctors for Disaster Preparedness (DDP) Recommends Calm, Sensible Preparedness in Response to Crisis

TUCSON, Ariz., March 20, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The past few months have featured various crises: bank failures, shortages of essential medicines and baby formula, and transportation accidents with massive environmental pollution.

     A panicked reaction will only exacerbate the situation, states Doctors for Disaster Preparedness (DDP) president Jane Orient, M.D. “You do not want to be participating in a bank run or a run on grocery stores and pharmacies. Nor do you want to be unable to shelter in place.”

     DDP recommends that everyone have the emergency supplies recommended by the federal government at In addition, consider the following:

  • Keep enough cash to cover essentials in case the bank is closed or the ATM is nonfunctional;
  • Purchase essentials such as prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications like pain relievers before you run out;
  • Maintain a supply of bottled water (and consider a water filter for your home);
  • Keep your pantry and freezer stocked;
  • Have plenty of warm clothing and possibly a Mylar sleeping bag;
  • Have a fire extinguisher at the ready and keep your yard free of inflammable debris.

     “Remember that the country now works on a ‘just-in-time’ system instead of keeping an inventory,” states Dr. Orient. “Supply chains can be interrupted.”
