September is National Preparedness Month – a month dedicated to raising awareness about the importance of preparing for disasters and emergencies.
This year’s theme, “Ready, Set, Go!”, encourages residents to take proactive measures before an emergency. Check out the following tips to stay alert:
• Residents should consider voluntarily relocating to a shelter or with family/friends outside the affected area. Residents should avoid close contact with those who are sick and should practice public health recommendations when relocating;
• Grab your emergency go kit;
• Keep in mind unique needs for your family or special equipment for pets and livestock;
• Stay aware of the latest news and information from public safety and public health officials.
