10 things to help get you Semper Paratus

Semper Paratus takes on a new meaning during Personal Readiness Month. It means more than being ready for a search and rescue case. Personal Readiness Month is the Coast Guard’s way to remind everyone – active, reserve, auxiliary, family and friends – to really think about being ready.

To do this, we’ve compiled a list of 10 things you can do to ensure you’re ‘Always Ready.’

Suicide Prevention: Just be there

Just be there: That’s my challenge to you during Suicide Prevention Month this September. Whether you reconnect with an old friend, grab coffee with a co-worker, or email a distant family member, showing that you care can mean the world to a person who is going through a tough time.

September kicks off three national campaigns

The month of September brings three important national campaigns – National Preparedness Month, National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, and National Recovery Month. We encourage everyone to use this month as a time to focus on yourself and your family in terms of preparedness, as well as physical and mental health and wellness! Each Monday this month, we’ll bring you blogs that will further explain each national campaign and provide additional resources for you and your family.
