Would you be ready if there were an emergency?

make your emergency plans,

Whether it's September or any other month of the year, disaster can strike at any time without warning. Be prepared for when - not if - the next emergency will occur.

How prepared are you? Preparedness is a responsibility we all share. Let's do our part.
