Citizens For A Better Norwood

September 11

Since September 11, 2001, we have been a nation at war. It seems a day does not go by that we don’t hear the term “terrorist” in the news.

Our nation has also had its share of natural disasters – hurricanes, deadly tornadoes, firestorms, earthquakes and floods. What we need to remember is that no community is immune to the wraths of nature; nor can we say with certainty that a terrorist will never attack our town.

The question that has to be asked is Are You Ready? Do you have your emergency supply? Do you and your family members know what to do when an emergency happens? Do you know how to shelter in place or do you know the evacuation route established by the City of Norwood (Here's a hint: it’s a secret). As we reflect on this day, let’s not forget our responsibility.
