National Preparedness Month is observed each September to raise awareness about steps individuals, families and communities can take to be ready for disasters and emergencies that could happen at any time. This year’s National Preparedness Month theme is Prepare to Protect and highlights how preparing for disaster helps protect everyone you love.
For the week of September 12-18, the recommended action is ‘Low-Cost, No-Cost Preparedness’. Disasters are costly but preparing for them doesn’t have to be. In fact, taking time to prepare now can help save you thousands of dollars and give you peace of mind when the next disaster or emergency occurs.
Take these simple steps now to be better prepared for any disaster or emergency that have little to no cost.
