Be Prepared! September is National Preparedness Month


Did you realize that we have a “National Preparedness Month?” As the father of 1 Eagle Scout and 1 “soon to be Eagle Scout,” “Be Prepared” has long been in our vernacular.  Whether it is planning for a campout, high adventure trip, the drive to school or a big storm, we are fairly well prepared as a family (we may not have been fully prepared for a pandemic, however).

Since September is “National Preparedness Month,” the IRS recently released a bulletin “urging everyone to update and secure their records to prepare now for natural disasters.”  

With the hurricane season beginning to brew, constant wildfires, droughts, Murph’s tornado alley and the rolling thunderstorms that have hit the South on a very regular basis, now is the perfect time to act so that you can “Be Prepared.”

Since you are your clients’ trusted advisor, you should continually remind them that the best way to avoid being unprepared is to get ready.

To see why, go over to Insightful Accountant, where Publisher Gary DeHart explains why.
