IL Health Officials Urge Preparations For Disasters
Illinois health officials are urging homeowners to make an emergency plan and prepare a supply kit for home during September, which is National Preparedness Month. Public Health Director Dr. LaMar Hasbrouck says a supply kit, a disaster plan and staying informed about the weather can help ensure communities around the state stay safe.
The agency and its Office of Preparedness and Response recommends making a kit with supplies to last three days and to designate locations to meet family members. Supply kits should have water, non-perishable food, a first-aid kit, batteries, bedding and more.
