September is National Preparedness Month, which aims at promoting emergency planning for families and communities. Click here to visit the official website of the Department of Homeland Security. The website has a ton of useful information on making disaster kits, formulating safety and financial plans,  developing evacuation plans, and talking to your kids and family about what to do in an emergency.
