September is National Preparedness Month and the Red Cross, along with actress Jamie Lee Curtis, encourages you to Get a Disaster Kit, Make a Disaster Plan and Be Informed about the types of disasters that can occur in your community. What’s that you say? We’re halfway through September? Well, that may be the case, but remember that disaster never takes a day off and that it comes in many shapes and sizes. From home fires, tornadoes and floods to H1N1, severe thunderstorms and hazardous materials spills, disaster is an unfortunate and ever-present fact of life. So take a gander at Jamie Lee’s video. Who knows, it might come in handy someday.
