PRLog - Aug. 25, 2011 - DALLAS -- This September: A Time to Remember. A Time to Prepare.
Dallas, Texas – This September, our nation will mark the ten year anniversary of 9/11.  First Aid & Safety of Texas has committed to participate in National Preparedness Month (NPM) in September, an event founded after 9/11 to increase preparedness in the U.S. The event, now in its eighth year, is a nationwide, month-long effort hosted by the Ready Campaign and Citizen Corps, encouraging households, businesses and communities to prepare and plan for emergencies. First Aid & Safety of Texas is participating this year by offering American Heart Association training courses, including CPR.  One of NPM’s key messages is: be prepared in the event an emergency causes you to be self-reliant for three days without utilities and electricity, water service, access to a supermarket or local services, or maybe even without response from police, fire or rescue. Preparing can start with three important steps:
1. Get an emergency supply kit
2. Make a plan for what to do in an emergency
3. Be informed about emergencies that could happen in your community, and identify sources of information in your community that will be helpful before, during and after an emergency.

Preparedness is a shared responsibility; it takes a whole community. This year’s National Preparedness Month focuses on turning awareness into action by encouraging all individuals and all communities nationwide to make an emergency preparedness plan. Preparedness information and events will be posted to Ready.gov.  

First Aid & Safety of Texas offers first aid, CPR and other courses throughout National Preparedness Month and throughout the year.  “Medical emergencies can strike anyone, anywhere - and when they do, a victim's chance of survival depends on the people around them. That could mean you”, says Fran Riggs, owner of First Aid & Safety of Texas.

This is the first year First Aid & Safety of Texas has participated in NPM. For more information about the Ready Campaign and National Preparedness Month, visit Ready.gov or call 11-800-BE-READY, 1-888-SE-LISTO, and TTY 1-800-462-7585
