September is National Preparedness Month, but getting your family prepared can occur during any month. For most getting prepared can be an extensive task, but with a little bit of preplanning and guidance it can be easy. The little things that you can do now to ensure your family is prepared for disaster will be worth it in the end when an emergency occurs.

Below you will find that we have made preparedness easy by splitting up preparedness tips into 30 days. How this can be used is either taking a month and preparing each day, or just using all the tips for one day or one week. It’s your choice!!

Making the choice to get prepared will make you less stressed, more resilient, and ready to face disaster when it strikes.

Take a Stand and get yourself prepared today!
