SEPTEMBER IS NATIONAL PREPAREDNESS MONTH!!!

SFCCC views disaster preparedness as an important part of individual, family, and community health. Learn about potential emergencies, which may occur in your local community and the ways to respond to each. Do you live near a flood plain, an earthquake fault line or in a high fire danger area? Does your neighborhood or community have a disaster plan? Being aware of your area’s disaster risk and how to prepare and respond to it will increase your likelihood of staying healthy and safe.  Learn how to create a Family Communications Plan or Personal Emergency Plan in case you and your loved ones are not together during a disaster or become separated during an emergency event.   Review information about basic emergency kits and how to personalize them with required medications, an emergency medical contact card, first aid supplies, extra food, water, etc. To learn more and/or get involved, please visit: http://72hours.org /or http://www.sf-fire.org/index.aspx?page=875
