National Preparedness Month
Did you know that September is National Preparedness Month? With all the fires raging in our area and the recent and future threats presented by the Atlantic storm season, the timing seems appropriate. The campaign, outlined on Ready.gov , explains how to prepare for an emergency. It presents information to help you understand what it truly means to be ready. Go to Ready.gov to be informed, plan ahead and take action.
Ready.gov is a National public service campaign designed to educate and empower Americans to prepare for, respond to and mitigate natural and man-made disasters. The goal is to promote preparedness through public involvement. Ready.gov especially encourages everyone to prepare so that we can help first responders in our community.
