Prepare now for a disaster

September is National Preparedness Month and it’s a good time to think of how you can successfully prepare for hurricanes and other natural disasters. It’s human nature to think the odds are in our favor and disaster won’t strike us. The reality is that at some point we all face some type of emergency for which a little advance planning can be enormously helpful. Disasters may be out of our control, but each of us does have control over our preparations and responses. Being prepared can provide a sense of control about your ability to manage the unexpected.
