National Preparedness Month
The month of September is National Preparedness Month, this month focuses on the importance of having a plan in place in case of a disaster or emergency. Due to California being at high risk of wildfires and an ongoing drought, it is important to be prepared to the unexpected. The Red Cross has created a Visual Checklist for Your Disaster Supply Kit, this is a good starting point.
Upcoming Trainings and Events
On Friday, September 15th at the Morgan Hill Library will be hosting Wildfire Preparedness: Ready Set Go! With Santa Clara Cal Fire to discuss how to prepare your homes and family before a wildfire, including creating defensible space, preparing go bags, discussing what to do during a wildfire and knowing when to go.
