Who we are?
The Campaign is led by a group of preparation enthusiasts. Over the years, this passion has evolved into a way of life. Currently, each of us has an emergency plan - our own emergency backpack, accumulated supplies allowing us to survive a long period of time without external supplies. We and our families are prepared and calm.
Our aspiration is to share our knowledge, skills and experience needed to survive the threats. That’s why the idea to design the GOTOWI.ORG campaign was born, so that we could provide everyone with information on how to prepare for crisis situations and regardless of the difficulties - survive.
To prepare materials for the GOTOWI.ORG portal, we made use of our own knowledge, experience and following institutions’ or people’s materials:
- Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)
- Administration and Digitization Ministry
- Interior and Administration Ministry
- National Fire Service
- Government Security Centre
- Jarosław Słoma - "I live and act safely"
- Voluntary Fire Brigade, Zakliczyn
- Police Headquarters Traffic Office
- Security and Crisis Management Office of the Capital City of Warsaw
We are a non-profit organization. The GOTOWI.ORG campaign is carried out with our own and donors’ resources.
