National Preparedness Month

September is National Preparedness Month (NPM) and is a great time to make sure we are prepared for and can respond to all types of emergencies, from natural disasters to terrorist attacks. We have hurricane season coming up soon along with tornados and other storms that can cause flooding and wind damage. Wildfires have been incredibly active this year. Are you prepared for any of these potential disasters coming your way? If not, take action now. This week’s articles can help.
