12 Months of Preparedness is a community wide initiative to prepare Oak Creek residents for an emergency by encouraging people to build an emergency preparedness kit.

Each month local stores will feature emergency preparedness items such as; bottled water, canned food, personal hygiene items, etc. Featured item cards will be placed next to the featured item for the month, so people can easily find items to add to their emergency preparedness kit.
