MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - September is national preparedness month, a month dedicated to making sure you and your family are prepared for any disaster or emergency that may hit.

This year’s theme for National Preparedness Month is “A Lasting Legacy: The life you’ve built is worth protecting. Prepare for disasters to create a lasting legacy for you and your family.”

This month is about taking action now, before a disaster hits. That means taking care of your home and your family ahead of time. It all starts with having a plan- a plan for your family and your pets, and getting some essential items together in one place so you can easily access them if you’re caught in an emergency situation.
