Are You Ready for Anything?

September 21, 2023
• With severe weather on the rise, it may be a good time to put aside a few useful items…just in case.

We all know there are things we should do to be prepared for an emergency. Have a supply of food and water, make sure your phone is charged, check your flashlight….It all sounds like common sense, and we know it’s good planning, but it can also seem a bit daunting. How old are those batteries in your emergency radio? Wait…does anyone still have an emergency radio? Well, September is National Preparedness Month, so there is no better time to check up on what you do have, and get started on putting new plans and supplies in place.
