September Is National Preparedness Month

September is National Preparedness Month, and emergency response agencies are reminding people to have a plan should an emergency occur.  Ian Stromquist of the Hood River County Health Department says when agencies talk about emergency preparations, the core is being ready for community isolation, ranging from roads being cut-off to loss of power.  He tells people to think about what they would need for a few days, comparing it to what you would take with you camping.  He also points out people should consider having copies of important documents ready to go, along with considering pet and medication needs.  This Saturday a number of different emergency service agencies will take part in Get Ready The Dalles on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Mid-Columbia Fire and Rescue on 1400 West 8th in The Dalles.
