August: Heat Safety

Spotlight On: Heat Safety           

Catastrophes can happen at any time and are likely to happen here. Imagine you are at work, on the road, or at home during a catastrophe. How would you communicate with loved ones? Are you prepared to survive without essential services, such as running water, electricity, or phones for 7-10 days? Being prepared can change everything.  By planning ahead you can increase the chances of survival for you and your family.
