September is National Preparedness Month

The Campbell County Office of Emergency Management urges you to "be ready" this September!

September is recognized as National Preparedness Month, and our Office of Emergency Management (OEM) reminds citizens that disasters happen anytime and anywhere. When disaster strikes, you may not have much time to respond. A highway spill or hazardous material detection could mean evacuation. Winter storms could confine your family at home. Earthquakes, floods, tornadoes, and other disasters could cut water, electricity, and telephone services for days.

Campbell County OEM director, Bill Turner, reminds you that, after a disaster, local officials and relief workers come onto the scene, but they cannot reach everyone immediately. Help can come within hours, or it may take days, depending on the situation.

Would you and your family be prepared to cope with the emergency until help arrives? Take a few minutes this month to prepare for disaster before it strikes so you are ready! When a disaster hits, you won't have time to shop or search for supplies, so consider assembling a disaster supplies kit. If you gather supplies in advance, your family can endure an evacuation or home confinement.

Be sure to also download and use the free FEMA app, which provides valuable safety tips to help you prepare for and recover from more than 20 natural and man-made hazards. Perhaps even better, this FEMA app sends you weather alerts from the National Weather Service for up to five locations across the country, making it easy to follow severe weather patterns that may be threatening your family and friends.

Please feel free to contact our Campbell County Office of Emergency Management if you have questions during this month where we want all citizens and business owners to take stock of your preparedness and to be ready!
