September is National Preparedness Month

September 10th, 2011

Have you been in the unfortunate position to find out first hand if you were ready for an emergency?  For many of us, we realized being prepared goes beyond the assembly of an emergency supply kit, but requires planning, staying informed during the emergency, and getting involved to help family, friends and your community as everyone recovers.   The Red Guide to Recovery website provides specific resources to help with disaster preparedness and hope that as we support National Preparedness Month, we can make it a bit easier for you to prepare for the unimaginable – or unfortunate recurrence- of an emergency.
