Are You Prepared For National Preparedness Month?

Are You Prepared For National Preparedness Month?Prepare your family for a disaster during National Preparedness Month.

September is National Preparedness Month, making it the perfect time to focus some time and energy on making sure your family is ready for a disaster. Here are just a few steps to making sure you’re ready for whatever comes.

  • Plan: As a family, sit down and talk about what you would do in the face of a disaster. Set up a meeting place in town to gather if you get separated, and designate one out of town in case your entire city as affected by the disaster. Have everyone commit a few emergency contact numbers to memory, too.
  • Create A Kit: Build a disaster preparedness kit but filling a bag you could quickly grab with water, nonperishable food, toilet paper, flashlights, a radio, batteries, a first aid kit, and other necessities.
  • Stay Informed: The more advance notice you have of a disaster, the better you’ll be able to respond. Make sure you have at least one source for receiving daily news about local weather and events.

A key component of preparing for a disaster is getting the insurance coverage you need. With the right policies, you can rest easy knowing your family can weather any storm with financial stability.
