September Preparedness Month
September marks the eleven year anniversary of 9/11. As we take time to remember those lost in the attacks, we need to make time to prepare for future emergencies. September is National Preparedness Month. This is the moment to protect you and your family from the unexpected.
Emergencies can happen anytime and anywhere. From severe weather like tornados and winter storms, to train derailments and other disasters, Wisconsin sees it all. This September, please prepare in the event your family must go for a few days without electricity, water service, access to a supermarket or pharmacy, or other local services. Just follow these three steps:
GET A KIT
MAKE A PLAN
Individuals and families are the most important members of the nation’s emergency management team. Being prepared can save precious time and save lives.
