September is National Disaster Preparedness Month.

Disaster can strike at anytime. Be it a natural one, like a hurricane, nor’easter, earthquake, or tornado, or man-made, like a forest fire, gas explosion, etc. Your first priority is to keep you and other people safe. You also want to protect your greyhound.

Readiness is key in keeping  yourself and everyone you love safe.
