September is National Preparedness Month
Snow. Floods. Extreme Heat. With every season, there is always something to prepare for.
If you’ve seen the news recently, you know that emergencies happen unexpectedly in communities just like ours, to people like us. The theme for National Preparedness Month this year is “Prepared, Not Scared. Be Ready for Disasters ” and challenges you to take action now.
Preparing goes beyond just making a kit and building a plan. Make time to learn lifesaving skills − such as CPR and first aid, and check your insurance policies and coverage for the hazards you may face, such as flooding and tornados.
