September is National Preparedness Month!

September is a reminder to take action and prepare now for whatever emergency may come our way. Building on the success of last year, the National Preparedness Month theme is once again “Don’t Wait, Communicate: Make Your Emergency Plan Today.” Each week throughout the month will have a different focus such as Preparing Family & Friends or Preparing through Service. Check out our Facebook page for weekly tips based on the themes:

  • September 4-10: Preparing Family and Friends
  • September 11-17: Preparing Through Service
  • September 18-24: Individual Preparedness
  • September 25-30: Lead up to National PrepareAthon! Day

Emergency Preparedness is for everybody. Please stop by the City’s Prepare Now table at the Goleta Lemon Festival September 24 – 25 to learn more about the Community Emergency Response Training (CERT) program.
