– “National Preparedness Month: Pledge to Prepare”
“If a disaster strikes, how will you and your family be ready? During the month of September, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Ready.gov teams are focusing on planning and preparing for disasters during National Preparedness Month.
This month, DHS is asking you to Pledge to Prepare. Visit ready.gov/prepare to see simple steps you can take, such as keeping an emergency kit in your office and at home and keeping copies of important family documents in a safe place.
Being prepared means having a plan,” quoting The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), who launched September as National Preparedness month in 2004.
