National Preparedness Month is recognized each September to promote the importance of family and community disaster planning.
As our community continues to respond to flooding, manmade incidents and severe weather, there is no better time to learn about being prepared.
Each week in September a different topic is covered in a newsletter written by Williamson County's Emergency Management team. Click the images below to access each one, and start preparing!
