September is National Preparedness Month

This past year has certainly illustrated the urgent need of preparation. From an early frost to tornadoes to extreme drought conditions, we’ve experienced it all.

This September will mark the ninth annual National Preparedness Month, an annual campaign led by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to encourage all Americans to take the necessary steps toward emergency preparedness. The Cooperative Extension Service through the Extension Disaster Education Network (EDEN) is a partner in this campaign.

EDEN links Extension educators across the country allowing them to use and share disaster resources. Click on EDEN’s website at www.eden.lsu.edu to find a variety of materials to use to help Michigan residents be prepared for disasters.
