National Preparedness Month
September is recognized as National Preparedness Month. It serves as a
great reminder that we all must take action to prepare, now and throughout the year, for the types of emergencies that could affect us where we live, work, and visit.
One of the keys to surviving a disaster is to have seven to 14 days' worth of supplies on hand. Check out the following videos for details on the types of supplies to include in your disaster kit for home and for work.
