Disasters Don’t Plan Ahead. You Can.
Here in the United States, we’ve had our share of emergencies and disasters this month… from two catastrophic hurricanes to mass shootings, our communities have been tested. In all of these situations, it’s the people of our communities that have pitched in and made a defining difference… and I don’t mean just our first responders. In the past three weeks, we’ve heard story after story of heroism where individuals and families have been rescued and saved based on the immediate actions of their communities. It’s a reminder that we should all be PREPARED. Are you?
September is National Preparedness Month
We should all take action to prepare! We are all able to help first responders in our community by training how to respond during an emergency and what to do when disaster strikes — where we live, work, and visit. The goal of National Preparedness Month 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.
