NATIONAL PREPAREDNESS MONTH
National Preparedness Month is recognized each September to promote family and community disaster and emergency planning now and throughout the year. The 2019 theme is “Prepared, Not Scared.” We all can take action to prepare, now and throughout the year, for the types of emergencies that could affect us where we live, work and visit. Find more information on preparing for emergencies by visiting the Department of Homeland Security site at www.ready.gov
September is a time to reflect on those first responders who gave the ultimate sacrifice on one of America’s darkest days. Take a moment to honor the fallen 343 at the twin towers. And, take a look at an Army fire truck used during the 9-11 terror attack at the Pentagon. The engine is now housed at the General Patton Museum in Fort Knox, Ky.
