FEMA urges families to prepare for disasters

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Disasters can happen at any time but less than half of American households have developed a plan should severe weather strike.

September is National Preparedness Month and FEMA and the AD Council have launched a "Ready Campaign" to provide tangible steps to help prepare for the unexpected.

FEMA Regional Administrator James Joseph joined ABC7 to talk about what you should do to prepare for a natural disaster.

September is National Preparedness Month so get those plans ready! Thank you to James for being with us here in Chicago.
