The Jefferson County Public Health Service is encouraging county residents to be prepared for emergencies, as it celebrates National Preparedness Month.

The monthlong effort, hosted by the Ready Campaign and Citizen Corps, encourages businesses, households and communities to prepare and plan for emergencies, according to a Public Health Service news release.

The agency suggested the following tips: be informed about emergencies and know hazards and risks in your area, make a plan for what you will do in an emergency, build an emergency supply kit, and get involved by promoting preparedness in your community.

For free information, including checklists and developing a family emergency plan, visit public health’s website, www.jcphs.org.
