September is National Disaster Preparedness month

September marks National Disaster Preparedness month, and in light of the numerous fires and landslides that have impacted our community this summer, please visit Ready.Gov for a list of resources helpful in creating a plan to best prepare for and respond to emergencies like natural and man-made disasters.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has prepared informative guides for seniors, students, small businesses, and offers information on Citizen Corps, where Americans can volunteer to respond to state and local communities experiencing emergencies.

Parents and teachers can click here to educate and involve children in preparing ahead. The site offers an emergency supply kit checklist for parents and children.

Additionally, September 30th is National Prepareathon! Day, a day for communities and individuals to prepare for disasters like wildfires. Please visit FEMA to learn how to prepare for a wildfire
