Digital Exclusive: National Preparedness Month, week two


SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) — September is National Preparedness Month and FEMA wants you to be prepared for any emergency.

During the month, every week is a different theme to ways to make sure you’re prepared when emergencies happen. This week is week two and it’s all about making a plan to be prepared for disasters.

FEMA has shared some tips about how to make different plans so you can be ready for emergencies:

  • Make an emergency plan
  • Learn your evacuation zone and have an evacuation plan
  • Practice evacuating in your car with your pets so they’re familiar if you need to evacuate
  • Include children in the disaster planning process
  • Sign up for alerts and warnings in your area
    • Weather alerts and alerts from your children’s school
  • Have enough food, water and meds to least at least 72 hours
