September is National Preparedness Month

The Kentucky Department for Public Health within the Cabinet for Health and Family Services, is reminding the public that households, businesses and communities can increase their preparedness by following this year’s theme of Prepared, Not Scared during the month of September.

The nationwide effort is organized each year by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to encourage citizens to prepare and plan for emergencies in their homes, business, and schools. This yearly observance was founded after 9/11 to increase preparedness awareness in the U.S.
