National Preparedness Month is recognized each September. Danbury Fire Department says this is done to promote family and community disaster and emergency planning now and throughout the year. The 2019 theme is "Prepared, Not Scared." Danbury Fire Officials say each week will have a different focus, with the first focused on saving early for disaster costs. This week is highlighting having a plan. Next week will be about teaching youth to prepare, and the final week will be about getting involved in the community's preparedness.
