National Preparedness Month/Pledge to Prepare

You can Pledge to Prepare for emergencies by signing up to join the National Preparedness Month Coalition 2012 online at www.Ready.gov.  More than thirteen thousand people and organizations have joined the Coalition this year. Participation is free and Coalition members are using the forum to discuss planning for all hazards and preparedness events they’re hosting or attending, big or small.

For more information about the library initiative and how to get ready for emergencies, follow FEMA Region VII on Twitter at www.twitter.com/femaregion7. General and disaster-specific (floods, tornadoes, earthquakes, etc.) preparedness information to protect life and property can also be found at www.Ready.gov.  Speak with your local homeowners’ or renter’s insurance agent about flood insurance, or visit www.floodsmart.org to learn your flood risk and what a flood insurance policy could cost.

Many public libraries in Kansas are participating!
