Weekly Tip: National Preparedness Month

September is National Preparedness Month.  FEMA and Ready.gov will be posting excellent topics and information on preparedness throughout September.  Here is a link to their website for more information and some great preparedness tips.  This year FEMA is encouraging everyone to take part in America's Prepare-A-Thon.  For more information click HERE

The recent earthquake in Napa, CA is a great example of why we all need to be prepared.  In California we have many different natural disasters that threaten our safety.  Always keep in mind your needs such as food, water, medicine, etc.  But don't forget about your pets, neighbors, and community.   

FEMA published a video about being prepared called "It started like any other day" that discusses being prepared.
