[ARCHIVED] September is National Preparedness Month

This September, National Preparedness Month (NPM) will focus on planning, with an overarching theme “Disasters Don’t Plan Ahead. You Can.”

2017 Weekly Themes
  • Week 1:  September 1-9        Make a Plan for Yourself, Family and Friends

  • Week 2:  September 10-16    Plan to Help Your Neighbor and Community

  • Week 3:  September 17-23    Practice and Build Out Your Plans

  • Week 4:  September 24-30    Get Involved! Be a Part of Something Larger

We should all take action to prepare! We are all able to help first responders in our community by training how to respond during an emergency and what to do when disaster strikes — where we live, work, and visit. The goal of NPM is to increase the overall number of individuals, families, and communities that engage in preparedness actions at home, work, business, school, and place of worship.
