Step 1: Build A House. Step 2: Set It On Fire

If you own a home or are thinking about buying one, check out the latest research from IBHS on how to help protect it from wildfires. After back-to-back hurricanes and wildfires, insurers are looking for more-resilient construction materials. That means building model homes and then blowing off their roofs or setting them on fire.

Virginia Department of Emergency Management

“Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face.” Pugilist Mike Tyson may be known more for his prowess in the ring than his philosophical musings, but this quote contains some sage emergency preparedness advice. In emergency management offices around the country, professionals called “planners” spend the bulk of their time developing response scenarios and imagining the “what ifs.” These planners write checklists, build appropriate response strategies, and anticipate deployment of personnel, equipment and commodities for myriad threats facing our citizens.

Here at the Virginia Department of Emergency Management (VDEM), our planners have developed comprehensive response strategies for threats ranging from hurricanes, tornadoes, snowstorms, earthquakes and other natural disasters, to man-made emergencies like terrorist attacks, cyber threats, and civil unrest. Our planners explore these scenarios and create volumes full of strategies and tactics to pull off a shelf when disaster strikes the Commonwealth. These plans help to guide response efforts, coordinate resources from the local, state and federal level, and remind decision makers on the options and consequences of life-saving decisions that must be made swiftly in times of crisis. It’s a vital part of our role as emergency management professionals to write, exercise and continually refine these plans.

And yet, we all know that these plans cannot account for every variable or every threat that could impact the lives, property and livelihoods of our communities. You cannot predict a hurricane path with certainty regardless of how many models you run. You cannot forecast the path tornadoes might take through a community. You cannot anticipate the nefarious creativity of those who plan to do harm to their fellow man. And as Mike Tyson would say, you cannot always predict what will happen when you get punched in the face. Yet it is just a matter of time before Virginia will receive a haymaker from Mother Nature or criminals that will disrupt life as we know it.
Through the process of planning, exercising and coordinating responses, we get better at developing the capabilities that will sustain us as Virginia responds to and recovers from any and all disasters. We learn. We grow. We develop relationships. We identify areas of improvement. And we continually refine our plans. While no plan is perfect, planning is vital to developing the resiliency needed for our community to recover when any disaster strikes.

The same is true at the individual level. Planning in your home and with your family can make the difference when split-second decisions are necessary to avoid catastrophe. While you might not have a detailed plan about how to take an uppercut from a heavyweight champion, you might be able to survive the results if an emergency hits you square in the jaw.

Ever been frustrated with a driver that merges at the last minute? Guess what? They’re right.

It’s called a zipper merge and occurs when motorists use both lanes of traffic until reaching the defined merge area, and then alternate in "zipper" fashion into the open lane. It reduces crashes, speeds and congestion.

Kudos to @mndot for providing some great information on the zipper merge:
