September is National Preparedness Month

DARKE COUNTY—The goal of this month is to increase public awareness about the importance of preparing for emergencies and to encourage individuals to take action. Each person’s needs and abilities are unique, and by evaluating your own personal needs and making an emergency plan, you can be prepared for any type of emergency situation.

The Darke County Office of Homeland Security & Emergency Management would like to remind everyone to:

• Get a Kit. Create a kit which includes emergency supplies that will last
for at least three days, maybe longer.
• Make a plan. Plan in advance what you will do in an emergency
• Be Informed. Stay informed about what might happen and prepare to
adapt this information to your personal circumstances. This is a great time to sign up for CodeRed Emergency Notification System. You can sign up for CodeRed on our website at

A commitment to planning today, will help you should you faced an emergency tomorrow. Preparing makes sense. Get ready now.

Go to and you will learn how you can participate in National Preparedness Month and prepare yourself and your family for emergencies.
