National Preparedness Month
September is National Preparedness Month and a good reminder that we all have a responsibility to protect ourselves, our families and our communities. Emergencies will happen, but taking action now can help everyone minimize the impact of the disaster.
NOW is the best time to plan for an emergency. Make your Emergency Plan today!
You can start by taking these simple steps:
- Be informed. Know the hazards and risks in your area, and learn what you need to do to get ready for them.
- Make a emergency plan, so you know how you would communicate with and find your loved ones if a disaster hits.
- Build an emergency supply kit - both at home and in the car - that includes water, food, and first aid supplies to help you survive if you lost power or get stranded in your car.
- Get Involved - safety and emergency preparedness. Most communities have established emergency procedures and participate in activities planned to communicate those procedures.
