Emergency Preparedness Resource Roundup

September is National Preparedness Month.

But disaster could strike at any time.

Natural disasters like earthquakes, floods, and fires can, indeed, be considered emergencies. But there are lots of other life events you can be prepared for, all year long, like lost wallets, household repairs, computer crashes, and long-term illness, just to name a few.
