September is National Preparedness Month. To help you prepare in case of a disaster or emergency, please see the resources, questions, and tips below from FEMA, ready.gov, and Cooper’s own Division of EMS/Disaster Medicine.
- Cell phones and computers can be unreliable during a disaster. Do you have a Family Emergency Communications Plan? Find one supplied by FEMA here.
- Do you have a designated place to meet your family outside your home or immediate neighborhood in case of an emergency?
