September is National Preparedness Month

Posted on September 3, 2016 at 4:40 pm by Clay Curtin

September is National Preparedness Month – a perfect time to help prepare your family for emergency situations. While the city is prepared to respond to the full range of emergencies, weather and other factors can delay assistance. You should be prepared to go without help for several days should a major disaster strike. By developing an emergency preparedness plan, you can outline what each family member needs to do in an emergency. That knowledge can avoid stress and confusion. Also helpful is making a “Go Kit” which can include food and water, medication, money, contact information and locations to meet. Discussing this information with your family will place them a step ahead if disaster strikes. Get tips and more information at Ready.gov.
