National Preparedness Month

September is National Preparedness Month. It seems that there is always something going on somewhere around the world to make us think about our own level of readiness for a disaster or unforeseeable event. Take the time to go one step further. Reflect, then act, and make sure you have a few vital items in place, like extra water, food, flashlights, batteries, sturdy shoes, medications and first aid equipment. A lot of these are items we take with us when we go camping, so my husband and I just make sure our camping equipment is up to date and stored in a secure and accessible location.
