September is National Preparedness Month!

“Disasters Happen. Prepare Now. Learn How.” is the slogan for the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s 2018 national preparedness month, with the focus being on creating a plan for yourself, your family, and your community. Each week has a different task to be completed, leading up to being prepared for all types of emergencies when they happen and in the aftermath and learning life saving skills to ensure that you and your family are safe when disaster strikes.
