September is National Preparedness Month – a time for you, your family, your workplace and your community to devote energies to ensuring you are prepared for emergencies and natural disasters. Think it’s unlikely that a disaster will happen to you? That’s what everyone thinks – check out the brief video to meet three survivors from three recent natural disasters: Hurricane Sandy; the Moore, Oklahoma tornado; and the Poinsettia Wildfire outside of San Diego, They talk about how suddenly and dramatically their lives changed when disaster struck.
This month, learn how you can take part in America’s PrepareAthon. Check out the resources and learn what protective measures to take before, during and after an emergency. It’s particularly important to have a plan and to have an emergency kit.
It’s also a pretty good time to check with your local insurance agent to see if your current coverage is adequate to protect your most important assets in the event of a disaster.
