September Is National Preparedness Month
September has arrived and with it the peak of the hurricane season, which can last into November. And by now, we've heard about all the fires in California. With more than 80% of us living in areas prone to weather-related disasters, it's important to be prepared with an emergency plan. More people live without such a plan than those who have one. The theme of the 2020 National Preparedness Month is "Disasters Don’t Wait. Make Your Plan Today"
How Ready Are Americans For Disaster?
Resources To Help You Prepare For Disasters
Each September, National Preparedness Month encourages and reminds Americans to be prepared for disasters or emergencies in their homes, businesses, and communities. The EPA's website provides great information on how to prepare and cope with natural and man-made disasters.
The Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also are a great resource for personal health preparedness, which include personal needs, paperwork, prescription and power-loss preparedness. And like the EPA's website, the CDC's website provides great tips and social media resources to help Americans prepare for disasaters.
The County of Santa Clara in California has a terrific 12-Month Emergency Preparedness Calendar on its website. They call it the Do 1 Thing Program that makes it easy to prepare yourself, your family, and your community for emergencies or disasters month-by-month. Easy-peasy to follow these monthly instructions over the course of one year.
