From hurricanes to earthquakes, we truly never know what type of disasters we might encounter in our lifetime. Whether it’s a complete surprise or not, being prepared is half the battle. All to often, our busy lives provide us an excuse to overlook the importance of disaster planning, leaving us vulnerable to even the smallest fire or unforeseen weather event. Let’s change that this September. September is National Preparedness Month and Pelican™ wants families to be ready whenever a national disaster strikes. Fires, earthquakes, tornados and floods, all wreak havoc on human beings but we no longer have to sit around in fear waiting for it to happen to us.
