National Preparedness Month

September 2010 is the seventh annual National Preparedness Month. This year’s event focuses on encouraging Americans to work together to take concrete actions toward emergency preparedness. Not only do the Health and Safety and Risk Management teams suggest that you spend some time making sure your family has an emergency preparedness kit, makes a plan, and stays informed, but they also encourage you to build readiness among your neighbors and across the community.
