September is National Preparedness Month, and in a news release urging everyone to be mindful of potential terror attacks, natural disasters, and pandemics, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said the federal government is ready to help:
“While our federal family is becoming better prepared to support the nation, we know that being truly resilient requires the whole community coming together,” she said.
“Simply put: bystanders canâ€™t stand by. Weâ€™ve seen countless times that bystanders are truly the first responders. They save lives. Each of us must be ready to help others when every minute counts.”
