National Preparedness Month – Are you ready?
Habitat for Humanity Inland Valley promotes disaster preparedness planning
Temecula, CA – Fires are raging and the thought of a potential big quake always lingers for
Californians. September is National Preparedness month and being prepared for an emergency is
critical. Habitat for Humanity Inland Valley (Habitat) is supporting the local community in an aim to
“Be Ready.” In partnership with the Ready.gov LISTOS California campaign and the Inland Empire
Community Foundation, Habitat will be hosting four disaster preparedness planning awareness Be
Ready shopping days. Shopping days will take place at Habitat’s local stores in Temecula. Shoppers
will have the opportunity to pick up a free LISTOS Disaster Ready Guide, as well as other disaster
ready kit items.
“As an organization that emphasizes a focus on shelter in our core principles, we want to make sure
that where our local families shelter is a safe place. The reality is that living in Southern California,
our communities are at risk for earthquakes and fires, but we can be ready,” shared Tammy Marine,
Habitat for Humanity Inland Valley Executive Director. “National Preparedness month is an
opportunity to engage with our community about planning for disasters. Habitat’s partnership with
LISTOS and the Inland Empire Community Foundation encourages family discussions on being
prepared, as well as promotes planning and action to be ready should a disaster happen.”
Preparing for a disaster can be simple and in times of crisis, being as ready as possible can save
time and lives. Making a plan, building a kit and staying informed can all help families stay safe if
and when a disaster hits. To download a LISTOS Disaster Ready Guide from home visit
