September is National Preparedness Month: Don’t wait, Communicate!

The Office of Emergency Management and Homeland Security (OEMHS) reminds residents that September is National Preparedness Month. Every year, emergencies affect millions of people globally, causing injuries, fatalities, economic losses and emotional stress. However, simple emergency planning and preparedness can greatly decrease losses.

This year’s theme of “Don’t Wait. Communicate. Make Your Emergency Plan Today” emphasizes taking action now to be prepared for eventual emergencies. Planning strategies should be in place for family and pets, as well as the workplace and the greater community.
