National Preparedness Month
September is National Preparedness Month. Our nation sets aside this month to remember the challenges we have overcome and reinforce the need for all to be prepared for disasters and emergencies. Being prepared is a shared responsibility.
COORDINATION IS KEY WITH WIRELESS EMERGENCY ALERTS
September is National Preparedness Month, and according to FEMA, the goal of National Preparedness Month is to increase the number of individuals, families, and communities who prepare for emergencies at home, work, businesses, schools, and places of worship. This year's theme is:
Disasters Don't Plan Ahead, You Can. Don't Wait. Communicate.
EMERGENCY SERVICES HELPS TEXAS AFFECTED BY DISASTERS
Throughout 2016, Mother Nature hit Texas hard enough for the federal government to declare four separate disasters, making Texans in 51 counties eligible for assistance. Much of that assistance was facilitated through Texas Health and Human Services Commission's (HHSC) Emergency Services Program (ESP), which supported 16,000 Texans last fiscal year.
