September is National Preparedness Month. This year’s theme is: Prepared, Not Scared!
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is focusing on teaching children and young adults the importance of building a culture of preparedness and resilience. When teaching preparedness at a younger age it can become a habit, by using the skills they learn as a way to protect themselves as they get older. It’s something everyone of all ages can learn from. It’s never too late!
