Hi I'm Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano... And I'm FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate... Are you prepared for a natural disaster or emergency? September is National Preparedness Month and we challenge you to "Pledge to Prepare" for a natural disaster or crisis in your community. Pledge to be informed about the types of emergencies that can happen in your area and know the appropriate responses... Pledge to make a family emergency plan and build an emergency supply kit... And pledge to get involved by finding opportunities to support community preparedness. Readiness is a shared responsibility and we're asking all Americans to join the readiness team. Learn more by visiting Ready.gov... and get started today. Because you never know when a disaster or emergency may strike.
