In an emergency, every second counts — that’s why it’s crucial to be prepared.
National Preparedness Month is recognized each September to promote family and community disaster and emergency planning.
The past year reminded us that no one is beyond the reach of emergencies. In the U.S., millions of people across the country were impacted by an unrelenting wave of devastating disasters — from back-to-back hurricanes, to record-breaking wildfires, historic storms and, of course, home fires — compounded by the COVID-19 pandemic.
