National Preparedness Month flyer, info in post.

"President Biden has designated September as National Preparedness Month for 2022.  Here is a link to the Presidential Proclamation: https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/presidential-actions/2022/08/31/a-proclamation-on-national-preparedness-month-2022/.  It is important to remember that during times of disasters, resources are strained during the response phase, and you should be prepared to be self-sufficient for up to 72 hours.  It is also important to make sure you check on your neighbors and help one another during these initial phases.  As we enter into the holiday weekend that is often celebrated with neighborhood cookouts, take the time to invite your neighbors over, get to know them, and discuss Emergency Preparedness with them.  Keep an eye on our websites and Social Media Pages this month for Preparedness Information, and remember to check out the Ready.Gov website for additional information on how you can prepare for different emergencies and this year’s National Preparedness Month: https://www.ready.gov/september#theme" - Fredericksburg Fire Department Battalion Chief Jack McGovern
