September is National Preparedness Month - Are you ready?

September is National Preparedness Month! Donít wait until a disaster occurs; take time to make sure your family is prepared.
Make a plan that outlines what you would do if there was an earthquake, flood, or fire, and assemble a kit that includes supplies for eating, hydration, first aid, safety, warmth, cleanliness, and health. Be sure to think of each family memberís specific requirements (including any pets).

A necessity for this kit is drinking water. Following a disaster, clean drinking water may not be available due to contamination of a water source or damaged service lines. Medford Water Commission will be working quickly to notify customers of any water advisories and to restore water service, but it is important to have a personal emergency supply of water for everyone in your household. At least one gallon of water per person, for a minimum of three days, is recommended for drinking and sanitation needs.

It is also a good idea to check your insurance policies and coverage for the hazards you may face, and set aside money to cover the costs associated with disasters.
