September is National Preparedness Month (NPM)


This September will focus on planning, with an overarching theme

“Disasters Don’t Plan Ahead. You Can.” ~ 2017


We should all take action to prepare! We are all able to help first responders in our community by training how to respond during an emergency and what to do when disaster strikes — where we live, work, and visit. 

The goal of NPM is to increase the overall number of individuals, families, and communities that engage in preparedness actions at home, work, business, school, and place of worship.

Preparedness shouldn't stop October 1st, lets us help continue to prepare all year long.

Below you will find some informational videos and links to get you started!


Let's be prepared TOGETHER!
