September is National Preparedness Month

If you've been reading this blog long, you know I love a good celebration. Well, this month is reason enough to celebrate - it's National Preparedness Month!

As you know, no matter how overwhelming or unimportant it may seem, it's vital to "Be Red Cross Ready" a.k.a. prepared. By taking these three steps, you can be ready to respond and stay safer in an emergency situation:

  1. Get a kit
  2. Make a plan
  3. Be informed
Take the Readiness Quotient Survey to get your preparedness score and see where you should start.

Then, Pledge to Prepare and get involved here.
