September is National Preparedness Month. In this month’s edition of Golden Nuggets, we will explore just what that means - understanding emergencies and being prepared for them
Northern Connecticut, lose power in a severe storm or wake up to your smoke-filled house on fire. Nobody wants to endure such emergencies, yet the possibility remains. We can’t always control the situations we may find ourselves in, but we can control our responses. The key is to be aware of potentially dangerous situations and be prepared to face them.
First launched in 2003, the campaign has since added Ready Business (2004) - designed to help small and medium-sized businesses prepare for emergencies - and Ready Kids (2006). They also partner with specific agencies to develop and disseminate materials tailored to specialized populations and groups. For instance, The Ready Campaign has worked with such agencies as AARP, the American Red Cross, the National Organization on Disability and the National Fire Protection Association to create emergency materials for the elderly and disabled individuals.
There are three main emphases of The Ready Campaign:
a) Education on how to create emergency supply kits
b) Education on creating family emergency plans
c) Education and information on differently types of emergencies and appropriate responses to them. These goals are reflected in this year’s theme for National Preparedness Month.
for emergency situations on individual, familial, community and national levels.
Every year, they have a particular focus. Last year’s theme was so successful they are continuing with it in 2016: “Don’t Wait, Communicate. Make Your Emergency Plan Today.” The theme will be broken into 5 sub-themes
for each week in September.
