Sept. is National Preparedness Month

Printer-friendly version

"Don't Wait.  Communicate.  Make your Emergency Plan Today."

That is the theme for this year's National Preparedness Month, and we encourage you to commit to increasing the level of emergency preparedness for yourself and your family.  The grass fire that took place today on 280 near 92 should be a reminder that emergencies can happen at any time, and close to home.
