Making a plan is an important part of National Preparedness Month. Why is a plan necessary? For one, family members are at different places throughout the day: soccer practice, high school, elementary school and the office. If a disaster were to strike right now and cell service was down, how would you connect with your family? Your family needs to be able to find one another quickly and without modern technology. So how do you do this? Simple, the old fashioned way!
September is National Preparedness Month. What better time to create a disaster kit, with the 6.0 earthquake in California over the weekend, and the east coast bracing for another hurricane, taking part in National Preparedness Month and could save your life!
It was an odd event for Southern California, being in a drought and all, but this weekend, Venice Beach in Los Angeles, CA, saw a rare thunderstorm. Sadly, it wasn't all fun and games: 15 were injured and one person died from as many as 4 lightening strikes.
