FEMA urges citizens to create an emergency plan

September 6, 2017

 

In light of recent hurricanes that have swept through parts of the nation, FEMA is encouraging citizens to take action before the next one hits.  September is National Preparedness Month, and FEMA says residents should put together an emergency plan.  FEMA says the plan should include a reliable way to receive emergency alerts and warnings, a shelter plan, an evacuation route, and a family and household communication plan.  It also recommends practicing the emergency plan so that it can be easily executed when a disaster hits.  For more information on how to develop an emergency plan, you can visit www.ready.gov/make-a-plan.
