National Preparedness Month

September is National Preparedness Month. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) are encouraging all of us to be knowledgeable, aware, and ready to take action in the event of an emergency. Are you ready?

We at JeTSI are using this month to make sure our Business Emergency Preparedness Plan is in place, and that our employees are well informed to create their own Family Emergency Plan and Recovery Kit. We hope you are doing the same!
