September is National Preparedness Month

from IAEM

Part of the job emergency managers and first responders do is to educate people on the steps they can take to mitigate and prepare for disasters and emergencies. Encouraging citizens to make a plan, learn how to evacuate safely, how to communicate to their families they are okay, and to physically prepare their property. Sometimes, they fail to look at their own families and properties and practice what they preach. September is National Preparedness Month and the theme for 2015 is "Don't Wait. Communicate. Make Your Emergency Plan Today." This is a perfect reminder for those working in the Emergency Services Sector to lead by example and ensure their family will be safe during an emergency. Ready.gov has many resources available toward this end including directions for making a plan; information on special groups, how to build a kit, and how to get involved in your community’s preparedness activities. Each week in September will focus on
a different natural or man-made disaster, with Sept. 30 being set aside for the national day of action campaign PrepareAthon! more
