National Preparedness Month

Emergency Preparedness

September is National Preparedness Month in Illinois! Disasters can strike at any time - make sure that you and your family are prepared with these tips from the Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA):

  1. Make a Plan for When a Disaster Strikes: Your family may not be together if a disaster strikes, so it is important to know which types of disasters (tornadoes, floods, earthquakes, etc.) could affect your area, and know how you will contact one another or reconnect if separated.
  2. Build a Kit: Once a disaster strikes, you will not have time to stop or search for supplies, so it’s important to have supplies pre-assembled. A kit should contain basic survival items necessary during an emergency, such as food, water, weather radio, batteries, medication, and supplies for each member of your family. Because a disaster can strike anywhere, emergency kits should be kept at home, at work and in your car.
  3. Prepare for Disasters: Practicing tornado drills and fire drills aren’t just for school. Walking through this procedure at home with your family, and at work with your co-workers, is a great way to prepare for a disaster.
  4. Teach Youth how to Prepare for Disasters: Disaster planning, response and recovery efforts should take into account the unique needs of children, who make up roughly a quarter of the U.S. population. Get kids involved in building their own emergency kit. Make sure to include your child’s favorite stuffed animals, board games, books or music in their emergency kit to comfort them in a disaster.
