National Preparedness Month 2011: A Time to Remember. A Time to Prepare.

Posted by on September 2nd, 2011 0 comments

September is National Preparedness Month. Emergency preparedness is one of those topics that is easily pushed to the back-burner, but in light of recent natural disasters around the country, National Preparedness Month reminds us how important emergency preparedness is. In 2011 natural disasters have become almost commonplace: Most recently, the east coast was shaken up by Hurricane Irene and an unusual 5.8 earthquake. In late spring, tornadoes raged in the Midwest. Earlier this year, a massive 9.0 earthquake rocked Japan and its resulting tsunami was felt as far as California. And this September marks the ten year anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Luckily, the Pacific Southwest Region has been able to avoid many of these disasters, but we are especially vulnerable to earthquakes, flash floods, hurricanes, monsoons, thunderstorms, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, and wildfires. The theme for this year’s National Preparedness Month is “A Time to Remember. A Time to Prepare.” This September, let us remember all of these events and prepare ourselves, both personally and professionally, for any future disasters or emergencies.
