MHN Member Pulse Updates and More

September is National Preparedness Month
If an emergency happened tomorrow, would you be ready?
In an emergency, every second counts. In support of National Preparedness Month, this month's Member Pulse digest includes tips on being ready for an emergency. Just click on the titles below to go directly to the articles.

  • Are you ready?
    Scan the news, and you're bound to see a story about a flood, fire or other crisis. When each second counts, can you quickly find your key documents?
  • Coping with a traumatic event
    After a crisis, it's normal to experience temporary changes in your thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and body. Being in tune with these changes - and not trying to rush or deny them - can help you heal.
  • Disaster preparation checklist
    From the hurricane-prone gulf states to the wildfires of the West, we are often reminded that disasters can strike close to home, at any time. Fortunately, we can reduce our anxiety and possible loss with preparation.
