September is National Preparedness Month; Residents Urged to Prepare for Hurricanes and Other Emergencies

September is National Preparedness Month, and residents are encouraged to be prepared for severe weather and other emergencies. With two more months remaining in the 2010 hurricane season, more storms could still bring high winds, flooding and power outages to the area.

Anyone who has not already signed up for the County’s Alert Montgomery notification system is encouraged to do so by going to and selecting the types of emergency alerts they are interested in receiving regarding weather, severe traffic, schools, park and government facilities, athletic fields and public events; along with the devices they would like the messages sent to (cell phones, text pagers, wireless PDAs, home and work emails).
