September is National Preparedness Month sponsored by the Federal Emergency Management Agency in the US Department of Homeland Security. The month serves to educate Americans on how to prepare for all types of emergencies, including natural disasters and possible terrorist attacks. Whether you are Chicago movers about to move or have moved recently, Meyers Movers wants to bring National Preparedness information to your front door.
Moving to a new area will present many unknowns that will be understood in time as you settle in and adjust. At Meyers Movers, we think understanding the risk of certain disasters occurring in your new community is one unknown Chicago movers will want to understand before or shortly after a move so that you can be prepared as soon as possible.
We encourage Chicago movers to join us for this eleventh annual National Preparedness Month by knowing the risks for disasters in your new area and preparing for them. We have compiled this list of informative internet articles to educate our Chicago movers and help them take the steps necessary to be prepared. We hope you take some time to read over the many resources for protecting yourself, your family and your home in case of an emergency.
