A guide to being ready for emergencies
September is National Preparedness Month. It’s a good time to make sure your household is prepared for emergencies.
Although emergencies may happen when we least expect them, we can take steps in advance to help ensure they are well managed. It is important to talk to your entire family to make sure everyone knows what to do in the event of an emergency.
