September is National Preparedness Month

President Barack Obama has declared September 2012 to be National Preparedness Month. According to his Presidential Proclamation, “Each of us has an important role to play in bolstering our preparedness for disasters of all types -- from cyber incidents and acts of terrorism to tornadoes and flooding. I encourage all Americans to visit or to learn more. Individuals and families can also take action by building a disaster supply kit with food, water, and essential supplies in case of emergency, and by developing and sharing an emergency plan with their loved ones.”

Last week, Rio Salado College staged a fire drill to practice emergency evacuation procedures. To learn more about our emergency preparedness efforts click here.
