National Preparedness Month
Here at SERVPRO of Somerset County & Westmont, we have joined FEMA and countless other organizations in preparing for emergencies throughout the month of September.
If you've seen any news coverage lately, you know that emergencies happen unexpectedly in communities just like ours, to people just like us.
By developing an emergency plan with our families, emergencies, congregations, neighbors and co-workers, we can ensure that everyone knows what resources are available in an emergency and where to go if the need arises to evacuate. We can work as a team here at SERVPRO of Somerset County & Westmont to make our communities, our neighborhoods and our own families safer.
The theme for NPM this year is "Prepared, Not Scared. Be Ready for Disasters". This goes beyond make a kit and building a plan, it asks citizens to learn CPR and first aid, check their insurance policies and educate and involve youth in the preparedness.
As we here at SERVPRO of Somerset County & Westmont continue to be prepared for emergencies, we encourage everyone in the local community to do the same. You never know where you'll be when an emergency strikes, so prepare for it now.

Install a smoke alarm on every level of your home; (2). Test smoke alarm batteries every month & change them AT LEAST once a year; (3). Practice finding your way out of the house with your eyes closed, crawling or staying low & feeling your way out of the house; (4). Remember to escape first, then notify the fire department.
