SEPTEMBER IS NATIONAL PREPAREDNESS MONTH
September is National Preparedness Month, a time to make sure you and your family are ready to react to the natural disasters most common in your area. Here are a few tools we’ve gathered to help you think through plans for various types of disasters.
General Preparedness Resources
- FEMA’s mobile app allows you to receive alerts for up to 5 locations and also provides safety tips, checklists, and local emergency shelter information.
