September is National Preparedness Month! With unpredictable weather, it’s important that you and your family are prepared for any disaster that may come your way. We want to make sure that you are not only prepared, but that you have the tools you need to teach your kids or students how they can help their families be prepared as well. You can start with a few simple steps.
National Preparedness Month raises awareness about the importance of preparing for disasters and emergencies that could happen at any time. “A Lasting Legacy” is this year’s theme because the life you’ve built is worth protecting; prepare for disasters to create a lasting legacy for you and your family.
Being prepared doesn’t always mean that you’ll know exactly what to do or how to react, but it does give you the tools to think quickly and take action. It is important to teach kids at a young age to be prepared. Don’t let a disaster take your legacy.
