Don't Let Storms Catch You By Surprise
September is National Preparedness Month. Each week a different point of preparedness is emphasized. Week one’s theme is “Make and Practice Your Plan.” Here is what they stress.
- Make an emergency plan.
- Sign up for alerts
- Establish your evacuation zone, and practice.
- Put your plan in writing or a graphic
We need to be ready for anything at any time. The weather has proved to be both unpredictable and volatile the last few years. Here in the Joplin area it seems the threat of tornadoes that used to be a concern mainly in the spring months are a concern for the majority of the year. Our crews were dispatched to Aurora Missouri just last week after a confirmed tornado touch-down.
We have also experienced unusually high rain fall amounts of the last few weeks. Localize flash flooding has been a problem in many areas.
The point? We have to be prepared at all times for just about anything. Plan ahead and I promise you will be glad you did when the moment of the unexpected happens.
