September Is National Preparedness Month!
This year for National Preparedness Month, join your community in preparing for emergencies and disasters of all types, and leading efforts to encourage the community as a whole to become more prepared.
Make and Practice Your Plan
Do you have an evacuation and shelter-in-place plan? Do you have a plan to communicate with your family members before, during and after an incident? Do you have an emergency supply kit? make sure your family is informed and practiced in your emergency plan. A good way to prepare yourself is signing up for alerts and warnings in your area, and downloading other necessary apps to stay informed.
Check Your Insurance Coverage
Have you reviewed your insurance coverage recently to make sure you're covered if disaster strikes? Evaluate which hazards are relevant to your area and obtain the appropriate insurance for your home, business or other property.
Save For an Emergency
Are you prepared financially in case of a disaster? Does your family have an emergency fund for unexpected expenses after a flood or fire? Check out FEMA's website (Federal Emergency Management Agency) for resources to help you identify and compile important documents so everything is all in once place when you need it.
