September is National Preparedness Month

According to the National Association of REALTORS®, 42 percent of female agents and 18 percent of male agents have stated they have felt "occasionally" unsafe while working in the field. Are you part of that percentage? Either way, it's important to keep safety top of mind. National Preparedness Month is an opportunity to remind yourself and clients that we must all prepare ourselves and families now and throughout the year. Take time to learn lifesaving skills, such as CPR and first aid, and don't forget to check your insurance policies and coverage for hazards you may face, such as flood and tornados.

Learn more about how to protect yourself from everyday crimes and disasters in an exclusive ABoR Academy course! This class is for everyone, REALTORS®, and office staff alike.
