Everett Salutes September as Emergency Preparedness Month
9/17/2014
HARRISBURG – The House unanimously passed House Resolution 998 today which designates September as Emergency Preparedness Month in Pennsylvania, said Rep. Garth Everett (R-Lycoming), a sponsor of the measure.

“This resolution honors all of our first responders in Pennsylvania and coincides with the same observance on a national scale,” said Everett. “We are blessed to have so many dedicated men and women in all walks of life who volunteer in emergency services in addition to those who do this as a vocation. The services they provide are of life and death importance to our residents.”

The resolution stresses the importance of strengthening the security and health of the Commonwealth through consistent preparation for hazards such as natural disasters, acts of terrorism, cyber attacks and pandemic diseases. It also encourages local governmental entities to take a full range of steps in preparing for the event of a disaster.

Everett said this recognition is even more poignant now, following the sniper death of Pennsylvania State Trooper Cpl. Bryon Dickson II and the wounding of Trooper Alex Douglass in Blooming Grove, Pike County.

“A massive manhunt continues in an effort to apprehend the assassin who did this,” said Everett. “This is an example of how first-responders literally put their lives on the line every day and deserve nothing less than our full measure of honor and support.”
