September is recognized as National Preparedness Month serving as a reminder that we must all take action to prepare, now and throughout the year for emergencies.  Different types of emergencies can affect us where we live, work, and also where we visit.  An example of one of these emergencies is the recent flooding in Louisiana.

National Preparedness Month is Celebrated with weekly themes:

  • Week 1: August 28-September 3 - Kickoff to National Preparedness Month
  • Week 2: September 4-10  - Preparing Family & Friends
  • Week 3: September 11-17 - Preparing Through Service
  • Week 4: September 18-24 - Individual Preparedness
  • Week 5: September 25-30 - Lead Up To National Day Of Action – September 30

Your family may not be together when a disaster strikes, so it is important to make a plan just in case.  Some things to consider when making your plan are

  • How will my family receive emergency alerts and warnings?
  • How will my family get to a safe location?
  • How will my family communicate if cell phone, internet, or landline doesn’t work?
  • How do I let loved ones know I am safe?
  • How will my family members get to a safe meeting place to reunite after the emergency?
We never know when a disaster might strike.  Be prepared - make a plan.   For more information on National Preparedness Month or how to go about making a plan visit the Department of Homeland Security Website.
