September is “Preparedness Month”

Michigan residents should prepare for emergencies and disasters by making an emergency plan with their loved ones and learning life-saving skills as part of Michigan’s “Preparedness Month,” according to the Michigan State Police, Emergency Management and Homeland Security Division.

Throughout September, the MSP/EMHSD is joining federal, state and local governments, as well as private and public organizations, in supporting emergency-preparedness initiatives.

Agencies nationwide are uniting under the theme “Disasters Happen. Prepare Now. Learn How,” to encourage everyone to create a family emergency plan and to learn skills needed to help themselves and others until help can arrive.

All households should be self-reliant for at least three days by building an emergency preparedness kit supplied with food, water and medications.
