ScanMyPhotos urges photo scanning during #NPM National Preparedness Month

ScanMYPhotos Corporate Headquarters 2 300x225 - ScanMyPhotos urges photo scanning during #NPM National Preparedness MonthIn the United States, September is National Preparedness Month (NPM), sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security’s Ready Campaign in partnership with Citizen Corps and the Ad Council.


NPM is a nationwide effort to increase awareness for preparing and to effectively deal with emergencies and natural disasters.


It is designed to encourage Americans to take simple steps to prepare for emergencies in their homes, businesses, and communities.




Companies across the nation, including ScanMyPhotos, headquartered in Irvine, Calif., have registered to participate in NPM. Each business is issuing an urgent recommendation to encourage people to take action and prepare for emergencies year-round.




“One of the most important items in every household are photographs. As the average household has about 5,500 analog photo snapshots, there is an urgency to preserve those generations of precious memories for today’s all-digital world. Photos must be protected from natural disasters,” says Mitch Goldstone, president, and CEO of ScanMyPhotos.com.


ScanMyPhotos.com is urging people to have their hard copy photos, slides and film negatives scanned and backed up now.

Food

 

Like any large event with high expectations (weddings, Thanksgiving, July 4th picnic), the food can make or break your family reunion. Find out what allergies and dietary restrictions need to be accommodated before you start planning the menu with your committee (if it’s potluck), the caterer (if it’s not) or the restaurant or resort that is hosting your family.



Favors

 

You don’t have to design, order, and hand out matching t-shirts to everyone who attends, but it is a nice idea to create a favor that is tied into the reunion. A softcover book that contains the family tree, a photo of families from each branch, and their mailing address and phone numbers would be nice. You could also create a photo book using archived family photos.
