September Preparedness Month – Here NOW #NatlPrep

We love to travel which means checking the weather anywhere we are going! This month is September Preparedness Month by Ready.gov who is offering a number of resources that are extremely helpful in case of a natural disaster.

Here are a couple for your reference.

o   Learn how to create evacuation and emergency communication plans

o   Download printable family communications plans for your children here

o   Resources for natural disasters in your area: Hurricanes, Floods, Earthquakes, Tornados, Wildfires and Winter Storms as well as tips about how to prepare.

Below is a PSA recently released by FEMA, created pro bono by Deutsch Inc. These PSA videos show the aftermath of a disaster through two families; one family who have all found each other safely at a shelter they earlier designated as their meeting place, and one set of parents who are frantically searching for their son.  The ads show the harsh reality of what can happen when you don’t have an emergency plan in place.
