September is National Preparedness Month — Severe Weather Safety

While spring and summer are traditionally viewed as peak seasons for severe weather, increasingly severe storms can develop at any time of the year – including hurricanes as witnessed by recent events on the southeast coast.

Whether it’s a thunderstorm that brings tornadoes and lightning or tropical storms and hurricanes that bring heavy rainfall and destructive winds, severe weather can strike anywhere. Staying safe in a storm means preparing your organization and your employees for them before they happen.
