My Name is Earl (er, Tropical Storm Earl)

My Name is Earl

Many thanks to Stormpulse for the screen-shot!

And apologies to the tv show “My Name is Earl” (I always enjoyed you!)

It’s that time again – Hurricane Season time –  time to address Emergency Preparedness.

The first thing to address is to be prepared (the boy scout motto holds true to this day) or READY, as in ready.gov. On ready.gov, you’ll see that you need to Prepare, Plan and Stay Informed. And, the information is available in multiple languages including Chinese – 中文, French – Francais, Haitian – Creole, Korean – 한국의, Russian – русский язык, Spanish – Español, Tagalog – Tagalog, Vietnamese – tiẽng việt, and Urdu –  اردو.

And September (which starts next week) is National Preparedness Month.

With that in mind, safety comes first. So you may want to visit the South Carolina Emergency Management Division (SCEMD) to learn about what’s new and to stay informed on events in South Carolina. Additionally, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) maintains current information throughout the United States.

If you need legal assistance, there’s a website designed especially for you – the National Disaster Legal Aid website!

If you’re a South Carolina attorney looking to PREPARE, then there’s great information available on the SC Bar’s website – Prepare: Disaster and Emergency Preparedness.

Good luck!
