This year, pledge to make preparedness a priority Every September, Americans are encouraged to prepare for disasters and emergencies. National Preparedness Month was created in response to the terrorist attacks of 9/11, however, it is a good time to make sure we are prepared for all types of emergencies.   Emergencies are part of life. Fire, police and emergency medical services may be delayed in an emergency or unable to respond. Whether it's tornadoes, flooding, winter storms, or an act of terrorism, emergencies can occur quickly and without warning. Although we cannot prevent emergencies, we can prepare for them.   There are three simple steps you can take: o Build a kit. Your emergency supply kit should have everything you need to sustain you and your family for 3-5 days. o Make a plan. Knowing what to do in the event of an emergency is key. Make sure everyone in your family knows what to do. o Be Aware. Learn about the hazards that can affect your community, and learn how to obtain information about current weather and road conditions.
