National Preparedness Month

Tips specific to flooding can be found here.

Preparedness is a year round activity. However, September is the month for recognizing national preparedness. The overall goal is to engage the public to make preparedness a part of their daily lives and just not for one single month. National Preparedness Month (NPM) is geared towards building awareness and encouraging Americans to take steps to prepare for emergencies in their homes, schools, organizations, businesses, and places of worship.

Building community resilience requires close coordination with government,emergency managers, public and private and sectors, as well as individuals to plan for the needs of the whole community.

You never know when the big one will hit. Use the preparedness tools found here as well as those on our partner sites to learn how you can prepare this month. National Preparedness Month is a reminder to get ready, because tomorrow may not be like today.

Preparedness tips are available in this presentation, which can be used at your home, business or place of worship.  Download this presentation here.
