September is National Emergency Preparedness Month! Please don't ask why that excites me. I can't explain it. Okay, maybe it is because I grew up in earthquake country.
Please make sure to have, at the very least, a 72 hour kit. Honestly, you should have a kit that will last for a week.
There are so many ways to get prepared. There are tons of resources on the web that have information on how to prepare yourself. I love the CERT program! It is a great program that helps you prepare for your own family but it also teaches you how to help during a disaster. I highly recommend it to everyone.
This picture was taken at a CERT training in June. I just happened to run across it this morning and decided to share.
