With increasing global temperatures, the world is at risk of natural disasters more than ever. They may include hurricanes, tornadoes, storms, floods, droughts, wildfires, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions.
In 2021 alone, more than 20 weather-related catastrophes caused over $1 billion in damages in the US. A natural disaster may hit a state anytime and at short notice. Preparing for disaster management and evacuation is essential to save life and property losses.
September is celebrated as National Disaster Preparedness Month. The theme for 2022 is “A Lasting Legacy: The life you’ve built is worth protecting. Prepare for disasters to create a lasting legacy for you and your family.”
Use the opportunity to educate yourself and spread awareness about preparing for a natural disaster.
