Get Ready Day

As National Preparedness Month winds down, The American Public Health Association wants to remind you about Get Ready Day, the third Tuesday of September.  The aim of the campaign is to help you prepare for emergencies, including infectious disease, natural disasters and other catastrophic events.

They have free emergency preparedness fact sheets, in English and Spanish, which you can download here and keep with your emergency kit.

If you don’t have an emergency kit yet, now is a good time to create one.  You don’t have to spend a lot of money getting ready.  Check the fact sheet for preparing on a budget.  preparing on a budget.

Once you have a kit, you need to review it regularly.  To help you remember, their slogan is “Set your clocks, check your stocks.”  Put a reminder on your calendar to change your smoke detector batteries and update or replenish your provisions when daylight saving time ends in November.
