National Preparedness Month is observed each September.  The objective is to raise awareness about the importance of being prepared for disasters and emergencies.  A large part of being prepared is being aware.  Survivors of the recent tragedy in Hawaii all relate similar stories.  They had a feeling that something was wrong, and they got out.  Listen to your instincts.  Pay attention to your surroundings.  If something or someone gives you a bad feeling, don't ignore it. 

Remember, awareness is preparedness.
