Events like the recent flooding in Louisiana, Hurricane Hermine approaching Florida, and Hurricane Lester in the Gulf remind us that weather can change at a moment’s notice.
Disasters don’t always occur when we are together with our family and friends, and so it’s important to take time now to plan what you will do in an emergency. It only takes a few minutes to talk through the greatest risks that can affect where you live, work or go to school.
This September and throughout the year here are few actions you can take to get started:
- Make & practice your family emergency plan
- Download the FEMA app
- Share preparedness tips with the #NatlPrep Social Media Toolkit
By having a conversation or making a plan, families can have more confidence and be better prepared when the next event happens.
