September is National Preparedness Month (NPM)

 

NPM 2009 Logo

Now in its sixth year, National Preparedness Month (NPM) is a nationwide effort sponsored by the Ready Campaign, with support from Coalition Members across the nation. NAPO is proud to be a NPM coalition member for the fourth consecutive year.  The purpose of NPM is to encourage Americans to take simple steps to prepare for emergencies in their homes, businesses, and communities.

Check out ready.gov for more information about preparing for emergencies.  If you’re in Florida, make sure to check out the special hurricane section. 

While there is typical information that many of us may already know (make sure you have flashlights and extra batteries) there are also tidbits of info that you may not know (you need to plan for a gallon of water per person per day).  Grab a large sealable bin for all of your supplies and store it in an easily accessible place.

Get a kit.  Make a plan.  Be informed.
