Be Prepared, Not Scared
Did you know that September is National Preparedness Month? You can never be too early to be prepared. National Preparedness Month is recognized each September to promote family and community disaster and emergency planing now and throughout the year. As our nation continues to respond to COVID-19, there is not better time to be involved this September.

- Week 2 -Build a Kit Make sure that you have enough supplies that will last for several days after the disaster for all that live in your home.
