September is National Preparedness Month and the Somerset County Department of Emergency Services encourages families, businesses, schools, communities and organizations to participate. This annual campaign seeks to transform awareness into action by encouraging all citizens to take the necessary steps to ensure that their families, homes, workplaces and communities are prepared for disasters and emergencies of all kinds. If the public has any questions about preparation for disasters or emergencies please come see our free public informational display during the whole month of September at the Somerset County Office Building Annex Rotunda located at 300 North Center Ave in Somerset beside the county courthouse.
The ReadyPA campaign can help you and your loved ones prepare for a disaster. The campaign’s Web site, www.ReadyPA.org (or call 1-888-9-READYPA) offers important information like what to include in a preparedness kit and how to create a family emergency plan. Knowing what to do is your best defense in any emergency so start planning now. This September, share that message with others by encouraging them to “Be Informed, Be Prepared, and Be Involved.”
National Preparedness Month is sponsored by the Ready Campaign (www.ready.gov) in partnership with Citizen Corps (www.citizencorps.gov) and the Advertising Council. The Ready Campaign’s websites and toll free numbers (1-800-BE-READY)
