September 2015 is the 12th annual National Preparedness Month and a good time to determine if you are ready for the various disasters or disruptions that could occur. The theme this year is "Don’t Wait. Communicate. Make Your Emergency Plan Today," and it is great advice. Ready.gov is urging everyone to make a plan including having an up-to-date contact list for everyone in your organization and establishing alternate methods of communication in case traditional methods are unavailable. And remember preparedness at home as well.
