National Preparedness Month


It seems the natural disasters are affecting more and more people throughout the world. From devastating earthquakes and their resulting tsunamis to volcano eruptions, floods and other emergencies, it is important to have a game plan of preparedness. Community organizers can reach out to citizens during National Preparedness Month in order to increase the chances that they will survive and thrive after these occurrences.

We have unfortunately learned the lessons of unorganized response to disasters. As a result the Department of Homeland Security designated September as National Preparedness Month. Educating the public through information and awareness events can help them have a preparedness list, proper supplies and a game plan. Promotional reminders can also serve as emergency equipment, such as flashlights, first aid kits, fleece blankets, and other custom printed safety products. In addition to community outreach programs, residents and business owners can be directed to the FEMA website for resources and tips on how to prepare for disasters.
