September is Preparedness Month!
Governor Greg Abbott issued a proclamation recognizing September 2021 as Preparedness Month in Texas. Coinciding with National Preparedness Month, this month is a time to encourage Texans to develop and practice emergency plans to protect their household and property in the event of an emergency or natural disaster by creating a communication strategy, deciding on an emergency meeting location, building a three-day disaster preparedness kit, and signing up for emergency alerts.
The Texas Division of Emergency Management, which marks its second anniversary as a standalone state agency under the Texas A&M University System, is also highlighting key preparedness topics from Ready.gov every week during the month of September 2021 across social media.
Week 1, September 1-4: Make A Plan
Talk to your friends and family about how you will communicate before, during, and after a disaster. Make sure to update your plan based on the Centers for Disease Control recommendations due to the coronavirus.
