“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.
Week 1 September 1-8: Make and Practice your Plan
Week 2 September 9-15: Learn Life Saving Skills
Week 3 September 16-22: Check Your Insurance Coverage
Week 4 September 23-29: Save for an Emergency
