National Preparedness Month

National preparedness month

Nobody knows exactly when or where a disaster may happen in the future, but while clairvoyance is unlikely, it is possible to plan in advance for a disaster.

Now in its 10th anniversary, September is National Preparedness Month – a time to enhance awareness of the need to prepare for disaster before it happens. Preparation is often the most crucial element in properly dealing with disaster when it strikes. The steps taken today in assembling an emergency supply kit as well as planning and practicing an evacuation and communications plan can make an important difference when time is of the essence.
