September is National Preparedness Month and we’ve had many reminders on the need to be prepared.  There have been severe thunderstorms, ice storms, snow storms, frigid temperatures, drought, high temperatures, and the list goes on.  These of course are natural events.  Public Health asks that you consider the other events in your life also as a reason to be prepared…for instance, what if you are ill and cannot leave your home?  How will you get groceries?  Do you have enough supplies to sustain your family if you have a financial emergency?  These are all things we don’t think of but, we should.  Take time this month to get your family prepared for emergencies.  The link below is a good guide to assist you:
