Disasters happen; Learn how to prepare during September’s National Preparedness Month


This year’s campaign theme, Disasters Happen. Prepare Now. Learn How, encourages everyone to prepare for emergencies that could affect homes, schools, jobs and communities. Planning and preparing now for disasters empowers individuals, neighborhoods and communities until first responders can arrive.
Aligning with the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Ready campaign, the Ohio Emergency Management Agency and ReadyOhio encourage everyone to Prepare Now and Learn How by participating in this year’s weekly themes:
Sept. 1-8:  Make and Practice Your Plan;
Sept. 9-15:  Learn Lifesaving Skills;
Sept. 16-22:  Check Your Insurance Coverage; and
Sept. 23-29:  Save for an Emergency.
