An Ounce of Preparation: September is National Emergency Preparedness Month
CSAC and California Counties have placed a strong emphasis on disaster preparedness, resilience and recovery over the past several years. Some of our most memorable regional meetings, partnerships and even Challenge Awards have spotlighted California’s innovation in preparedness at the individual, community and county levels.
In a state as geographically diverse as California, emergencies can take many forms. Wildfires and earthquakes are often top of mind, but power outages, floods, debris flows, tsunamis and even drought can prompt disaster declarations as well.
In honor of September being National Emergency Preparedness Month — designed to promote family and community disaster and emergency planning now and throughout the year – we are highlighting many of these stories on social media.
