Get Ready! National Preparedness Month

September is National Preparedness Month, and the Chambersburg Fire Department wants you
and your family to Get Ready in case of an emergency. Ten years ago, the National Fire
Protection Agency recognized a need for families across the country to be prepared during a
natural or manmade disaster. A campaign titled Get Ready! was started and has continued every
year since. Get Ready! offers many valuable resources for communities to be better prepared if a disaster happens.

Please find helpful links listed below that direct you to information on safety tips,
communication plans (highly recommend filling out), and what to do in an emergency.
