This National Preparedness Month Be Disaster Aware, Take Action to Prepare.
The Ready Campaign established four universal building blocks of emergency preparedness: Be informed, Make a Plan, Build a Kit, and Get Involved. America’s PrepareAthon! builds on this foundation by encouraging millions of Americans to focus on a simple, specific activity that will increase preparedness.
During National Preparedness Month we ask you, your family, community, school and workplace to take action by planning a National PrepareAthon! Day on or around September 30th. We recommend using digital media tools as a way to promote National Preparedness Month, September 1-30th.
Each week throughout National Preparedness Month will focus on different emergency preparation topics:
Week 1 - How to Reconnect with Family After a Disaster
Week 2 - Know How to plan for specific needs before a Disaster
Week 3 – How to Build an Emergency Kit
Week 4 & 5 - How to Practice for an emergency
Ready.gov has all the information you need to start the conversation with your family including emergency kit checklists and disaster fact sheets.For more information about National Preparedness Month visit: www.ready.gov/september
