September is National Preparedness Month

Did you know that September is National Preparedness Month?  We here at Montgomery County Fire and Rescue encourage all of our community members to focus on individual and family preparedness at home, at work, and at school.

I would encourage all of you to take a moment and look at the links below to see what you and your loved ones can do to be prepared for all kinds of emergencies.  It could be as simple as testing your smoke alarm and making sure you have a home escape plan!

Do you use battery powered lighting equipment instead of candles when the power is out?  You should!

Many more tips and information can be found here:
