September is National Preparedness Month, a month dedicated to planning for disasters and emergencies. This year, The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) are asking people to make a plan now, for anything that might happen in the future. They suggest making plans with your community, your family, and for your pets. Plans can include what to do, how to stay safe, and how to communicate during a crisis. The months ends with National PrepareAthon! Day, on September 30.
The Ready campaign offers resources like plans and plan templates, hazard education, and supplies and documents for families that want to participate in preparedness activities. Explore their website to find out more about getting ready and National Preparedness Month.
