– “Presidential Proclamation on National Preparedness Month, 2018”
“The seasons change and so does the weather. Good time to be prepared.

“National Preparedness Month is a time to focus our attention on the importance of preparing our families, homes, businesses, and communities for disasters that threaten our lives, property, and homeland. During this time, we also honor the brave men and women who selflessly respond to crises and disasters, rendering aid to those in need. These first responders, who work tirelessly to safeguard our Nation and protect our citizens, deserve our utmost gratitude and appreciation.”

– From the American Red Cross: “Make your disaster plan today”
“With severe weather on the horizon, it’s the right time to have a disaster plan ready. As September is National Preparedness Month, take a moment to make sure you and your loved ones are prepped in case of any emergency. Creating a family disaster plan doesn’t need to be as detailed as ours and is simple to do: Identify disasters most likely to affect your area, map out the escape routes from your home and stock your home disaster kit. Don’t wait until it’s too late — start your own disaster plan with tools and resources from the Red Cross today.”
