It's September 1st and that means the first day of #NationalPreparednessMonth!

Thank you to Mayor Craig A. Moe for declaring the month of September National Preparedness Month! And be sure to follow us on social media for weekly tips on how you, your family and your business can be prepared in case of an emergency!

Facebook, Twitter and Instagram: @LaurelCityOEM

This year's theme is "A Lasting Legacy," the life you’ve built is worth protecting, so make sure you are prepared for disasters to create a lasting legacy for you and your family.

And keep an eye out on Laurel City OEM because we will be sharing some videos from the #CityofLaurel Departments that they created on how to make an emergency kit. And we'll need your help in voting for the best one!

#BePrepared and let's start creating a Lasting Legacy together!
