National Preparedness Month

Would you be ready if there were an emergency?

September is National Preparedness Month, but what exactly does it mean to be prepared? In honor of National Preparedness Month, sponsored by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), we encourage you and your family to take some time this month to learn about local hazards, develop a disaster plan, and put together an emergency supplies kit so that you are ready for when disaster strikes.

Ready.gov is a great resource for emergency planning. Learn more about the importance of making a plan and how to communicate and stay informed during emergencies by clicking here. Ready.gov also provides guidance on how to prepare a disaster supplies kit and how to ensure your kit is properly stored and maintained.

Your plan should include all family members – even pets! Disaster preparedness tips for pet owners can be found here.

Don’t Wait. Communicate. Make your emergency plan today!
