It's National Preparedness Month – Are You Ready?
September is National Preparedness Month and we want to help make sure our community is ready to respond to a disaster. Please take time this month to make sure you and your family are well-prepared for an emergency. Take a quick online survey and be entered to win a free emergency preparedness kit from the San Mateo Consolidated Fire Department!
The San Mateo Consolidated Fire Department, FEMA and County offer a variety of resources available to make sure that you’re prepared, not scared, and ready for disasters. FEMA has a new theme each week including: save early for disaster costs, make a plan to prepare, teach youth to prepare, and get involved in your community’s preparedness. Don’t miss the County’s annual Disaster Preparedness Day, a family-friendly event Sept. 21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the San Mateo County Event Center.
