OFFICIAL MAGAZINE OF THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®

Daily Real Estate News  |  September 6, 2006  |   September Is National Preparedness Month
The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORSŪ is joining with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to launch National Preparedness Month 2006 this September.

National Preparedness Month is a nationwide effort that encourages Americans to prepare for emergencies of all kinds. A special Web site, www.ready.gov, has been created to share helpful and important information.

“We believe in the importance of educating individuals on the potential life saving steps that can be taken to ensure the safety of families in the event of a natural disaster or potential terrorist threat,” says Thomas M. Stevens, president of NAR.

NAR is using its vast network of members and home owners to help communicate the importance of preparedness — including having a family plan and having an emergency supply kit ready and on hand. “REALTORSŪ are a strong voice for communicating the importance of being prepared in case of natural disasters,” Stevens says.

In addition to joining the Department of Homeland Security’s efforts, NAR has created a disaster planning task force made up of REALTORSŪ from all across the country. NAR will hold a natural disaster symposium in Washington on Sept. 18, when participants will discuss the need for a federal natural disaster insurance program and the need to be ready for such disasters.
