You may already be aware that September is National Preparedness Month. Being prepared can mean many different things depending on your personal situation. When a disaster hits home, it can bring many challenges to daily life that we may not all have a knack for thinking of ahead of time. That is why it’s beautiful a thing that we have experts in the Disaster Recovery and response fields who put together many great resources to help us all in becoming responsible and prepared citizens. Preparing is an important thing that every family should do to be safe! Additionally, it’s great to encourage others in your community to do so as well by sharing your plan. The better prepared we all are, the faster everyone recovers and gets back to the new normal.
