September is National Preparedness Month, and it serves as a reminder of how crucial it is for us to prepare for the unexpected. Each week we will be focusing on a different theme that will hopefully get us feeling more confident and secure if ever faced with a natural disaster or emergency.
This month, you’ll be reminded about making and practicing a plan, the importance of learning life-saving skills, checking your insurance coverage and why you should be saving for an emergency. Starting a conversation about natural disasters and emergencies is sometimes the hardest part; we’ll give you tips on what to do each step of the way.

“Just like harvest season rolls around every year, you can count on emergencies being a constant in our lives. And while we can’t prevent every disaster, it just makes sense to prepare for them now.” -Senator Jon Tester
