September is National Preparedness Month! This year’s theme is “Prepare to Protect. Preparing for disasters is protecting everyone you love.”
Ready.gov has created a week-by-week plan to help you prepare for any emergency this month and all year long. Let’s get started!
September 1-4: Make A Plan
Talk to your friends and family about how you will communicate before, during, and after a disaster.
Consider the specific needs of your household. Does it include children, elderly persons, persons with special needs, pets?
Write out a Family Emergency Communication Plan.
