Prepare For Emergencies During National Preparedness Month

Full Story

Tallahassee, Fla.—Throughout September, the Florida Department of Health is participating in National Preparedness Month by encouraging Floridians to take action and make a plan to ensure their families, homes and businesses are prepared when natural disasters or other emergencies occur.

Health educators and nutritionists with the Florida Department of Health often promote the health benefits of small lifestyle changes: eating more vegetables and fruits, replacing sodas with water, taking daily walks or choosing the stairs over elevators. These are doable and budget-friendly goals that can fold into your days, become routine and over time do amazing things for your health. The hardest part of healthy habits, after all, is making them stick.
