September is National Preparedness Month. Our President encourages all Americans to take some time this month to prepare for emergencies that could affect us where we live, work, and also where we visit. Emergencies happen often without warning and it’s up to us as Americans to do our part to be as prepared as possible for emergencies. During President Obama’s Presidential Proclamation – National Preparedness Month, 2016, he stated, “Whether in the form of natural disasters like hurricanes and earthquakes, or unspeakable acts of evil like terrorism, danger can arise at unexpected times and places. Fortunately, there are many things that individuals, families, and communities can do to improve their readiness. I encourage all Americans to take proactive steps to prepare for any situation that may occur including signing up for local alerts, checking insurance coverage, documenting valuables, creating a plan for emergency communication and evacuation, and having a fully stocked disaster supply kit on hand.”
