National Preparedness Month

Posted by on September 5, 2020 at 3:25 PM

September is National Preparedness Month (NPM), and according to Wikipedia, it was established in 2004 and has since been observed each September in the United States. NPM is sponsored by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and comes under the jurisdiction of the Department of Homeland Security. Recognizing NPM is an opportunity to take a good look at how we are prepared for emergencies in our homes, businesses, schools and communities, and then decide how to be prepared for sudden disasters.

At this time, NPM is more relevant than ever. At the personal level, it’s imperative that we know how to protect ourselves and family during these pandemics. Our emergency supply kits should include ample quantities of masks, sanitizer and disinfectant cleaner. Our children need to know and understand the importance of this virus, at least as much as they can understand. They need to be observant and careful about their surroundings without being fearful. When we do the necessary tasks to stay safe, we are not denoting the presence of God in our lives. He tells us in His word to be wise, use wisdom. “…wisdom is found in those who take advice.” (Prov. 13:10) Taking precautions can help to keep you or your family safe is using wisdom. suggests 4 essentials that will enable you to be prepared for a disaster, a 4-step process that will take the month of September to complete. Catch up if you are just reading this:

Week 1 – September 1-5: Make A Plan

Talk to your friends and family about how you will communicate before, during, and after a disaster. Make sure to update your plan based on the Centers for Disease Control recommendations due to the coronavirus, to which I add, stay informed.


Week 2 – September 6-12: Build A Kit

Gather supplies that will last for several days after a disaster for everyone living in your home. Don’t forget to consider the unique needs each person or pet may have in case you have to evacuate quickly. Update your kits and supplies based on recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control. FEMA suggests a more extensive emergency kit which is listed below.


Week 3 – September 13-19: Prepare For Disasters

Limit the impacts that disasters have on you and your family. Know the risk of disasters in your area and check your insurance coverage. Learn how to make your home stronger in the face of storms and other common hazards and act fast if you receive a local warning or alert.



Week 4 – September 20-26: Teach Youth About Preparedness

Talk to your kids about preparing for emergencies and what to do in case you are separated. Reassure them by providing information about how they can get involved.

FEMA Emergency Supply Kit

A basic emergency supply kit could include the following recommended items:

• Water (one gallon per person per day for at least three days, for drinking and sanitation)

• Food (at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food)

• Battery-powered or hand crank radio and a NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert

• Flashlight

• First aid kit

• Extra batteries

• Whistle (to signal for help)

• Dust mask (to help filter contaminated air)

• Plastic sheeting and duct tape (to shelter in place)

• Moist towelettes, garbage bags and plastic ties (for personal sanitation)

• Wrench or pliers (to turn off utilities)

• Manual can opener (for food)

• Local maps

• Cell phone with chargers and a backup battery

• Download the Recommended Supplies List (PDF)

I hope you will take advantage of this information by taking the steps necessary to ensure your family’s safety to the best of your ability and leave the rest in the hands of the Lord.

Prov. 20:18 “Make plans by seeking advice…”
