September is National Preparedness Month

September is National Preparedness Month. Are you ready if a natural or man-made disaster were to strike? It's time to get prepared and organized to keep you and your family safe in the event of an emergency. Having an Emergency Supply Kit for your household is a must! There's no telling how long you'll have to survive completely on your own before help arrives. You're also going to need a Family Emergency Plan (FEP). Who to call? What to do? Where to meet? Ready.gov offers some great tools to help you get prepared:
Emergency Supply Kit
(A recommended 3-day supply of what to have in your kit)
Family Emergency Plan
(A form for contact information and meeting locations, complete with cut-out cards to be carried with each family member)

For more great tools and information visit Ready.gov.
