September is National Preparedness Month.
This is to raise awareness about the importance of preparing for disasters and emergencies that could happen at any time.
The 2021 theme is “Prepare to Protect. Preparing for disasters is protecting everyone you love.”
Throughout the month Peoria residents are encouraged to make a plan, build a kit, safeguard important documents and teach youth about preparedness. For more information and preparedness tips, visit www.ready.gov/september.
