September 2011 National Preparedness Month

.


WHAT IS NATIONAL PREPAREDNESS MONTH?

National Preparedness Month (NPM) is held each September to encourage Americans to take steps to prepare for emergencies in their homes, businesses, and communities.

Groups can register to become an NPM Coalition Member by visiting ready.gov and clicking on the NPM banner.

The Ready Campaign promotes individual emergency preparedness. Ready is a national public service advertising (PSA) campaign, to educate and empower Americans to prepare for and respond to emergencies, including natural disasters and potential terrorist attacks.

The Campaign’s Web sites (ready.gov and listo.gov) and toll-free numbers (1-800-BE-READY, TTY 1-800-462-7585, and 1-888-SE-LISTO) provide Americans with free emergency preparedness information.

Greetings from Texas,
The best advice I can give is not to wait until the weatherman says "The End Is Near" before looking for emergency supplys. Our son wanted to get a generator when he found out we would be without power for a week a while back. The prices on them had doubled when you could find one.

I even called my sister in the Texas Panhandle several hundred miles away. Could she find and ship a generator. It was the same story there.

Updating the pantry with Art's help.That's part of our emergency preparedness.

Canning and pickling, too. Still eating jar dinners and modifying recipes.

Get a good wood/cook stove and have a good supply of water along with your food supply. Gimme a good stove, a crick and a gun.... oh, and a wooded range to hang out at.
