Time to plan

September is National Preparedness Month

National Preparedness Month is held each September to encourage Americans to prepare for emergencies wherever they may be.

September is National Preparedness Month, held each year to encourage people to prepare for natural disasters and other emergencies.

The reliability and resiliency of the Postal Service are vital to the country, especially in emergency situations, and a key element is the individual preparedness of all postal employees, both at work and at home.

“Your commitment to our public service mission and to delivering for our customers defines who we are as an organization and is the bedrock of all of our successes,” said PMG Megan Brennan.

Employees are encouraged to make a family emergency plan and take other steps, such as creating an inventory of personal documents at home, getting an emergency supply kit, and staying informed about different emergencies.

You also should plan how you will stay safe and communicate during disasters that may affect you and your family.
