National Preparedness Month in Puerto Rico and Resources for Businesses and Institutions

By: WebWire

September has been designated National Preparedness Month (NPM) by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) since 2004. The annual event and month-long observance is designed to raise awareness about the importance of preparing for a wide range of disasters and emergencies that could happen at any time. The theme for 2022 is A Lasting Legacy.

Businesses and institutions in Puerto Rico and across the Caribbean should have a plan in place and know the resources they can call upon to respond to natural disasters such as floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, wildfires and even earthquakes. Other emergencies they could face and be prepared for include pandemics; human-caused hazards like accidents and acts of violence; and even technology-related events like power outages and equipment failures.

“With Hurricane Fiona impacting Puerto Rico over the weekend, it is a reminder of the importance of National Preparedness Month and having plans in place to be able to continue operating our businesses, schools and institutions when faced with a disaster or emergency,” said Harry Pena, President of Zimmetry Environmental. “At Zimmetry, we have decades of experience helping to prepare for, and respond to, disasters of all types. Our industrial hygiene, environmental and infection control professionals provide a wide range of indoor and outdoor testing, monitoring and consulting services for chemical, physical, radiological and biological hazards.
