September is National Disaster Preparedness Month!

Tornados, earthquakes, floods, and fires are disasters that can bring tragedy to communities and families across the nation. Being prepared for events such as these by having an emergency plan can make a real difference in people's lives. September is National Disaster Preparedness Month, a time when organizations, communities, and families are encouraged to plan for emergencies and the unexpected. This year's theme, "Don't Wait, Communicate," reminds us that we should have a conversation about what to do in an emergency and that the last thing we want to worry about in an emergency is how to communicate with our family.
Below are a few resources available to help you get started creating a preparedness plan:

  • The Department of Homeland Security's National Preparedness Month website is great source for information on preparing families and communities for all types of possible emergencies, including resources on making plans and preparing emergency kits.
  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in collaboration with theAmerican Red Cross, created the Emergency Preparedness and You web section, which identifies and answers common questions about preparing for unexpected events.
