September is National Preparedness Month

According to ready.gov, "National Preparedness Month (NPM) is recognized each September to promote family and community disaster planning now and throughout the year. As our nation continues to respond to COVID-19, there is no better time to be involved this September."

As a part of National Preparedness Month, the Nevada Wildfire Awareness Campaign has prepared wildfire preparedness posts below.

Facebook: September is National Preparedness Month and we recommend preparing for wildfire by packing a go-bag. A go-bag should be easily accessible and filled with the items you need to quickly and safely evacuate your home. It needs to have enough supplies to last at least three days but should have enough to last seven days. Find out what goes into a go-bag and how to put one together in our “Fire Adapted Communities: The Next Step in Wildfire Preparedness” linked below.
