September marks National Preparedness Month. During this month, Americans are encouraged to plan how to stay safe and communicate if a disaster were to strike their community.
Disasters like tornadoes, floods, earthquakes and more can strike at any time. Many people falsely believe that these kinds of events will never happen to them. Yet as the video above shows, they can--and do--happen.
Check out the video to get an idea of why being prepared matters. An easy to kick off the process is to create emergency kits for your home and car. Another way to be prepared is to make sure you have the right insurance coverage. An insurance professional like an Erie Insurance Agent can help you get the right protection at the right price.
