Avon, IN, United States, 2011/08/29 - September is National Preparedness Month. The Ready Campaign encourages households, businesses and communities to prepare for emergencies. Join Hartman Inventory Systems as they help provide pertinent information so all can be ready for a disaster.
Leader in the home inventory industry participates in A Time To Remember-A Time To Prepare Campaign.
This September, our nation will mark the ten year anniversary of 9/11. Hartman Inventory Systems has committed to participate in National Preparedness Month (NPM) in September, an event founded after 9/11 to increase preparedness in the U.S.
The event, now in its eighth year, is a nationwide, month-long effort hosted by the Ready Campaign and Citizen Corps, encouraging households, businesses and communities to prepare and plan for emergencies.
One of NPM’s key messages is: be prepared in the event an emergency causes you to be self-reliant for three days without utilities and electricity, water service, access to a supermarket or local services, or maybe even without response from police, fire or rescue.
Preparing can start with three important steps:
1. Get an emergency supply kit;
2. Make a plan for what to do in an emergency;
3. Be informed about emergencies that could happen in your community, and identify sources of information in your community that will be helpful before, during and after an emergency.
Preparedness is a shared responsibility; it takes a whole community. This year’s National Preparedness Month focuses on turning awareness into action by encouraging all individuals and all communities nationwide to make an emergency preparedness plan. Preparedness information and events will be posted to Ready.gov.
This is the 2nd year Hartman Inventory Systems has participated in NPM. Owner Cindy Hartman stated,“Educating the public about the need for an inventory of home and business contents is our mission. Being part of this month-long event helps us do that since knowing what one owns is a huge part of being prepared for a disaster. We will share the information the Ready Campaign provides to us through our blogs, in our September newsletter and also through posts on our Facebook and Twitter accounts.”
