September is National Preparedness Month
Source: Hardin Stevens, senior Extension associate, University of Kentucky, College of Agriculture, Food and Environment, March 2023
Since the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001, the federal government has named September as National Preparedness Month. This is to remind and encourage all Americans to be prepared for emergencies and disasters either man-made, weather related, or caused by other sources.
The National Weather Service encourages all households, businesses, and communities to take the following steps to prepare for a possible disaster or emergency.
1. Learn Your Risks and Responses – Be and Stay Informed.
2. Make a Plan. Practice your plan regularly so everyone is clear about their roles.
3. Build a Supply/Emergency Preparedness Kit. Maintain items by checking on expiration dates and updating items as needed or based upon your needs (young children, older adults, pets, etc.)
4. Get Involved. Before a disaster strikes, volunteer with your business or local community.
National Preparedness Month ends Sept. 30, which is National Preparedness Day.
In the time of a disaster or emergency, you may be on your own for 48 to 72 hours or longer before power returns or help can arrive, so prepare now so you can be ready and vigilant when the time comes.
