September: Time to prepare for the possibility of disasters


September is National Preparedness Month, a time when situational awareness is key and residents can prepare their families and their homes, vehicles and businesses for the possibility of a natural or manmade disaster.

No one wants to think that something bad will happen to them, but a little forethought can smooth the way to recovery if the unexpected does happen.

Fort Worth residents should visit KnoWhat2Do.com, a regional public education campaign that provides information about potential natural or man-made disasters that could happen in North Central Texas. The program provides descriptions of the disaster and provides methods that residents can take to prepare for them.

KnoWhat2Do.com provides tips on how to create a communication plan for your family. Knowing how you will be able to contact each other after a disaster can certainly ease fear.

You can also receive instructions on how to build a 72-hour emergency kit for your home, and don’t forget you’ll need an emergency kit for your vehicle in case you find yourself stuck on an icy road in February or on the side of the road without a spare tire in July.
