For those of you that don’t know, September is National Preparedness Month.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has launched a campaign to remind everyone that September is National Preparedness Month. FEMA say’s that the point of National Preparedness Month is to teach Americans how they can prepare themselves, and their families for the next emergency situation or disaster.
So what does FEMA Suggest you do to prepare for an emergency?
- Get an Emergency Supply Kit – Put together an emergency kit that includes all the supplies you’ll need to survive an emergency situation. They recommend having things like 72 hours’ worth of Water & Food, Batteries, an NOAA Weather Radio, First Aid Kits and various other Emergency Supplies.

- Make A Survival Plan – Having a plan of action is essential for any emergency situation. Should something go wrong, an emergency plan can help you stay on track and hopefully make the right decisions.
- Be Informed – Survival Equipment is great, but the key to survival is knowledge; without it you’re as good as dead. Reading Survival Books, Checking out Survival Websites like this one, and keeping an eye on what’s going on in the world, can all help to ensure your survival during an emergency situation.
