September is Emergency Preparedness Month and the perfect time to make sure that you and your family are ready for whatever Mother Nature sends your way.
Over the years, Central Texas has witnessed the devastation that storms, flash floods and wildfire can cause. It’s time to take stock and ensure that if a weather event occurs here, everyone is ready. Knowing the risk and staying informed are two of the most important steps that can be taken in the preparedness journey.
Here are a few tips to help get started:
- Get local alerts through Warn Central Texas. Sign up for emergency warnings by voice, text or email at WarnCentralTexas.org.
- Make sure you have family evacuation and communications plans.
- Update your emergency supply kit. Remember to include any medicines needed, for both the two-legged and the four-legged family members.
- Follow City of Round Rock’s social media platforms to stay current on local events.
