Ring in the New Year With Emergency Preparedness


As 2014 approaches, various communities have released emergency preparedness calendars to plan for and prevent potential emergency events that may happen during the next year.

These advanced preparedness calendars include ways that families can prepare for disasters; they include ways to prepare for evacuations that might include pets; and they often include events such as seminars, cyber security awareness fact sheets, and emergency contact information for families.
