September is National Preparedness Month. FEMA/DHS has weekly topics this month for enhancing your preparedness.
National Preparedness Month (NPM) is recognized each September to promote family and community disaster planning now and throughout the year. As our nation continues to respond to COVID-19, there is no better time to be involved this September.
The 2020 NPM theme is: “Disasters Don’t Wait. Make Your Plan Today.“
From Fox News, conservative Milwaukie County Sheriff David Clarke will resign his position to accept a position in the Trump administration:
Clarke told WISN 1130/AM host Vicki McKenna that he would be an assistant secretary in the Department of Homeland Security, where he’ll act as a liaison to local and state law enforcement, tribes, and the private sector. The position will be in the Office of Public Partnership and Engagement.
“I’m both honored and humbled to be apt to this position,” Clarke said. “It’s going to be a steep learning curve for me, serving in the Department of Homeland Security, and I look forward to joining that team.”
