Ready for Disaster – National Preparedness Month

[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='18' font_color='' color='' av-medium-font-size='' av-small-font-size='' av-mini-font-size='' admin_preview_bg=''] Are you ready if disaster strikes? September is National Preparedness Month. To some, it seems like an unusual month to feature, but after the past couple of years, our employees know all too well the value of being prepared in the face of a catastrophic disaster. Hurricanes, floods, tornadoes and fires – name your disaster, our employees have been through it and come out the other side stronger.

What is Preparedness?
Having a plan in these situations is vital to not only our business and our employees but to the communities we serve.  As a Company, we have these plans and a special task force of employees dedicated to executing them in the face of disaster. And each of us should have a personal preparedness plan too. We should be able to answer questions like – what is my evacuation route? What is our family communication plan? and more.

What can I do during National Preparedness Month?
Spear-headed by Ready, a national government public services campaign, this month reminds us that being prepared is an ongoing commitment. Each week this month, Ready is focusing on different themes to help everyone better prepare for a disaster.

So this month, carve out some time  to develop and practice a preparedness plan, learn special lifesaving skills and double check your insurance coverage. When we prepare, we are able to recover and aid our families, neighbors and communities faster.
