National Preparedness Month - Make a Plan

National Preparedness Month - Make a Plan

National Preparedness Month is recognized each September to promote family and community disaster planning. As our nation continues to respond to COVID-19, there is no better time to evaluate your family’s disaster preparedness. This week’s task is to make a plan.

Your family may not be together if a disaster strikes, so it’s important to discuss the following topics with your household.

  • Decide how your family members will contact one another and reconnect if separated during a disaster.

  • Establish a family meeting place that’s familiar and easy to find.

  • Be sure to take COVID-19 health and safety measures into account. The pandemic could impact your family’s emergency plan.

Disasters don’t wait. Neither should you. Make a plan with your family today.
