September is National Preparedness Month

Disasters don’t plan ahead. You can!

This September is National Preparedness Month (NPM). The goal of NPM is to increase the overall number of individuals, families, and communities that engage in  preparedness actions at home, work, business, school, and place of worship.

We can all take action to prepare for natural disasters, by training how to respond during an emergency and what to do when disaster strikes. The following resources can help you prepare.
