September is National Preparedness Month!

SeptemberPreparedness_FacebookPost_1C

Hurricane Harvey is a grim reminder that it’s important to know what disasters could happen in our community and how to prepare for them. Emergencies can happen any time, and all Americans should be prepared for disasters that could affect them.

September is National Preparedness Month, which serves as a reminder that we all must take action to prepare now and throughout the year for the types of disasters that can happen where we live, work and visit.

This year’s theme, “Disasters Don’t Plan Ahead. You Can,” encourages everyone to make an emergency communication plan ahead of time, partner with their neighbors and community, train to be citizen responders, and practice their preparedness. Each week in September, we will offer simple, no-cost preparedness tips.

The National Preparedness Month weekly themes provide many opportunities to get prepared before an emergency.  We start with Week 1, September 1 - 9.  This week's theme is "Make a Plan for Yourself, Family and Friends."  For more information go to Ready.gov's page Make a Plan
