Throughout National Preparedness Month many communities’ preparedness plans have been tested.
Hurricanes, earthquakes, wildfires, floods, and drought are just some of the threats faced this month.
Although preparedness is highlighted during the month of September, recent events reinforce the need for
preparedness to be a year-round effort – especially during months when daily operations are not being
overshadowed by catastrophe, and agencies and organizations are not being tested in full public view.
