I’m a big college football fan and since the “most wonderful time of the year” has recently started, I have come up with a simple solution that makes disaster preparedness more entertaining and relevant to college sports fans. Customize your preparedness kit to reflect your favorite sports team! For example, if you put some items in a backpack as part of your preparedness kit, have it represent good ol’ State! Better yet, make it a contest! Challenge a friend to create a better preparedness kit with an even cooler bag! This should get you started to a great September, which is National Preparedness Month.
For suggestions on what should go inside your preparedness kit, be sure to check out this link:
