National Preparedness Month

September is National Preparedness Month. Whether it be fire, floods or severe weather conditions, make sure you have a plan of action for when disaster strikes.

How can I be proactive about disaster preparedness?

  • Financial preparedness - Create a disaster savings fund and understand the extent of your insurance coverage.
  • Safety preparedness - Create a plan of action for disasters that are likely to occur in your area and learn essential safety skills such as first-aid and CPR.
  • Youth preparedness - Take into account the unique needs of children and include items in your disaster plan to keep them calm and comforted.
  • Community preparedness - Talk with your neighbors to see how prepared they are for disaster.
