National Preparedness Month raises awareness and encourages emergency preparedness because disasters could happen at any time, without warning, and have catastrophic consequences. This year’s preparedness theme is “A Lasting Legacy – The Life you’ve built is worth protecting.
Everyone has a role to play when it comes to preparing for disasters and emergencies. Being prepared for an emergency isn’t just about staying safe during a storm or a disaster. It’s also about how to stay comfortable, clean, fed, and healthy afterwards.
