September is National Preparedness Month


September is National Preparedness Month, devoted to encouraging Americans to plan ahead and prepare for emergencies in their homes, businesses and communities.

Make sure you and your family have a plan intact in case of an emergency:

  • Be aware of the type of emergencies, both natural and man-made, that could occur in your area and how you would be notified. 
  • Set up an emergency plan for your family, consisting of how you will contact one another, how you will get back together and what you will do in different situations.
  • Educate yourself on the emergency plans in places your family spends time: at work, day care or school. If emergency plans aren’t set up in those locations, volunteer to help construct one.
  • Subscribe to alert services, such as text messaging or e-mail alerts regarding weather conditions, road closings, local emergencies, etc.
  • Take time to update important phone numbers, purchase emergency  businesses and communities.
