That's why National Preparedness Month was introduced in 2004 by FEMA. During Preparedness Month, Americans are encouraged to take simple steps to prepare for emergencies in their homes, businesses, schools and communities.
Is your family prepared?
As of 2009, the Citizen Corps National Survey revealed that only 57% of Americans surveyed have supplies put aside in their homes solely for disasters, and a scant 44% have developed a household emergency plan.
Do you know where to begin?
For the month of September, I will be focusing a lot of my attention on sharing information about preparing with you.
I'll be highlighting several reviews (and maybe a few giveaways), tips about preparing your family and guest posts from other moms as well.
Some of the topics I'll highlight include:
- What should be in your kit?
