September is National Preparedness Month
Posted Date: 9/2/2014
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) offers ideas on ways you can prepare for an emergency in their home, business, school, and community.

1. Get a Kit - Prepare a disaster supply kit that will allow you to go without electricity, water, or access to a supermarket for at least 3 days.

2. Make a Plan - Create a family emergency plan that covers how to communicate in the event you are separated.

3. Be Informed – Be aware of resources in your community and stay connected with the media.

4. Get Involved – Look into taking a first aid class. Participate in a community preparedness exercise. Volunteer to support first responders. Talk to your family and friends about being prepared and encourage them to also prepare for a potential emergency.

Be Ready! September is National Preparedness Month. More information can be obtained on the CDC’s website.
