National
Preparedness
Month

Welcome to Preptember!

With September comes cooler days, crisp nights, and a national emphasis on preparedness. That’s right, it’s National Preparedness Month (or as we like to call it, Preptember)! Throughout this month, we want to help you put a greater emphasis on the way you prepare for emergencies.

Start with what you have, and then see what needs to be added to your prep. Perhaps it’s time to branch out with what kind of food you have, or how you store water. Each topic of preparedness has subcategories that helps round out your emergency prep so you can have a variety of ways to stay safe and cared for should the need arise.

But don’t put all your eggs in one basket! Having more than one source of food, power, and other resources will ensure greater protection and comfort when the need arises. Check out some of the different ways in which you can prepare with food, water, and gear:

Food

  • Bulk ingredients
  • Freeze-dried
  • Entrées

Gear

  • Power
  • Lighting
  • Tools
  • Shelter
  • Cooking
  • Etc.

Water

  • Barrels
  • Filters
  • Purification

Sanitation

  • Mobile washer
  • Portable Toilet
  • Hand Sanitizer

First Aid

  • Burn relief
  • Bandages
  • Disinfectant

Practice What You Prep

Besides stocking up on your prep, September is a great time to go out and practice using all your gear. Have a new tent? Go camping! Not sure how to use your emergency cook stove? Use it for tonight’s dinner! Being prepared includes knowing how to use your prep, so take this month to learn firsthand how to live well during an emergency!
