Winter’s looming, HIN1’s here and emergency officials are urging residents to get prepared now.

“It’s extremely important for everyone to ensure their safety and that of their family by making plans and putting an emergency kit together now, rather than waiting until something happens,” said Acting Regional Administrator Gary Jones of FEMA’s Region VI in a news release.

September is actually National Preparedness Month and the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Ready Campaign and Citizen Corps are leading this annual effort to raise awareness and promote action surrounding emergency preparedness among citizens, businesses and communities.

“We’re urging all New Mexicans to prepare for emergencies with an emergency kit consisting of a three day supply of food, water, medicines, pet supplies, flashlights, battery powered radio and batteries, a first aid kit and other items needed in an emergency,” said New Mexico Cabinet Secretary John Wheeler in the release.

Los Alamos County Emergency Management Coordinator Philmont Taylor addressed Los Alamos County’s preparedness plan during an interview this morning.
