September is recognized as National Preparedness Month (NPM) which serves as a reminder that we all must take action to prepare, now and throughout the year, for the types of emergencies that could affect us where we live, work, and also where we visit.
Residents are encouraged to prepare by following these important steps:
- Be informed about the risks facing Dublin.
- Develop a plan for your family, community and for your pets.
- Build an emergency supply kit
- Get involved and register for ALERTS at: http://dublinohiousa.gov/emergency-preparedness/dublin-emergency-calling-system/
National Preparedness Month was founded after 9/11 to increase preparedness across the United States. The month is sponsored by FEMA’s Ready Campaign in partnership with the Citizen Corps, FEMA’s grassroots strategy to bring together government and community leaders to involve all citizens in emergency preparedness planning.
