September is the beginning of Fall, both meteorlogical and seasonal, but it is also a very important month for another reason.
This month is National Preparedness Month. This time of the year is usually a little calmer with the weather around here, so it makes for a perfect time to prepare for any potential disasters that could happen in the future.
The biggest question I always get asked is "What should I do to prepare for a disaster? You really don't know what to expect until it happens." Now, that is a good point in some respects, because every disaster is different, but there are things you can do ahead of time that will help you get through any bad situation.
I want to share a couple of things with you, things that are easy, and relatively cheap, to do.
First, a plan called "20 weeks to preparedness". These are items you can buy that will help you in the short term the event of a disaster.
There is also a website powered by FEMA (the Federal Emergency Management Agency) that has a lot of helpful tips.
As always, if I can answer any questions, please get in contact with me. If I can't help, I'll point you in the direction of someone who can.
