Prepare Your Pantry for April’s “Do One Thing” campaign

Medford, Ore — Every month the City of Medford is encouraging residents to do one simple thing to prepare for an emergency.

This month, the “Do One Thing” campaign is focusing on preparing a food storage plan before disaster strikes.

In case of a major disaster, emergency managers recommend having at least 2 weeks worth of rations.

That includes shelf stable foods like canned goods and dry ingredients like dried milk, pasta and beans that can last long periods of time.
