September is National Preparedness Month. The focus on the first week of September is “Save Early for Disaster Costs”.
Thank you to Rex Bruce, Dupont City Council for sharing this information.
" "Prepared, Not Scared"
This month is National Preparedness Month. I think this month would be a great time to think about everything that you need to consider to survive a disaster - shelf stable food, cooking supplies, generators, gasoline, water, etc. We live on the southern edge of a massive fault line (the Cascadia Subduction Zone), on occasion have trains fall off the tracks that block one of our two ingress/egress routes, trees fall over during windstorms and impact the power grid, and sometimes we have car accidents that snarl highway traffic for hours at a time. Are you prepared to survive for a few days on your own? For a week? Two weeks? Check out the attached FEMA link for some good information, and I'll continue posting throughout the month to generate some dialogue amongst the community."
