Lapeer County will foster emergency preparedness


To the Editor:

September is National Preparedness Month (NPM), a nationwide effort sponsored by the Federal Emergency Management Agency's Ready Campaign in partnership with Citizen Corps.

I am pleased to announce Lapeer County Emergency Management is taking part in this nationwide effort to encourage individuals, families and communities to prepare for emergencies.

This year, NPM focuses on changing perceptions about emergency preparedness and will help Americans understand what it truly means to be "Ready." Preparedness goes beyond fire alarms, smoke detectors, dead-bolt locks and extra food in the pantry. Being Ready includes: getting an Emergency Supply Kit; making a Family Emergency Plan; being informed about emergencies and their appropriate responses; and getting involved in community efforts such as Citizen Corps.

We urge you to take time this month to become educated, trained and better prepared for emergencies or disasters. There are simple steps you can take to better prepare yourself and your family. I encourage you to visit www.ready.gov for more information and www.citizencorps.gov to explore ways that you can get involved in your community.
