September Is Preparedness Month


We don't like to think about disasters, but we must. 

A region like ours with frequent wildfires AND a jittery earthquake zone needs to be ready to respond to disasters. 

And this is apparently the month for it: September is National Preparedness Month. 

Ashland Fire and Rescue is urging city residents to take note of the month and get ready for possible disasters.
