National Preparedness Month – September 2017

Disasters Don’t Plan Ahead. You Can.

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 (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.
