Fort Hood focuses on preparedness


Recent hurricanes and the associated high winds, flooding and tornadic activity have highlighted the necessity of emergency preparedness.

September marks National Preparedness Month, a time geared toward building awareness and encouraging Americans to take steps to prepare for emergencies in their homes, schools, organizations, businesses and places of worship.

Each year, Fort Hood joins the nation in highlighting the importance of emergency preparedness and planning ahead for potential disaster.

This year's theme, "Disasters don't plan ahead. You can" emphasizes the importance of pre-planning for potential emergencies.

Established in 2004 by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, National Preparedness Month is observed each September and encourages Americans to take steps to prepare for emergencies at home, work and in their neighborhoods.
