3.5 Preparedness: September is Preparedness Month in Virginia

Coming right up before you know it is September, Preparedness Month in Virginia. Hurricane season runs through November 1 and recent storms have shown us how an emergency can crop up any time with very little warning. State of Virginia websites have step-by-step, detailed information to guide families in preparing a kit for all sorts of emergencies. Kids can help a lot; make it a family project and a challenge, not a scary emergency! For a fill-in or downloadable family emergency plan worksheet, go to ReadyVirginia.gov and click on “Make a Plan.”
