September is National Preparedness Month. This year’s theme, “Disasters don’t plan ahead. You can.” encourages everyone to prepare.
Residents of Clatsop and Pacific counties are well aware that there is plenty to prepare for – from upcoming winter storms to a potential Cascadia event. During the last two weekends of September, the American Red Cross will once again team up with Clatsop Community College to offer a free course in preparedness at the larger, community level.
