National Preparedness Month

Hurricane season hit the United States hard again this year, with devastating storms leaving millions without power, many without homes and families with loved ones lost. Although these storms have created problems, it is important to always prepare ahead of time to minimize your risk when disasters strike.

September is, ironically, National Preparedness Month, and Ready.gov has put a focus on advance planning. Have a strategy in place for your family – at work, school and home; have additional food and water supplies; use social media to your advantage for updates; and get involved in your community to help others.
