Organizational Webinar on America's PrepareAthon! #OKready #AltusOK

In support of Presidential Policy Directive (PPD-8), National Preparedness, America’s PrepareAthon! is launching its first national day of action this year on April 30, 2014.  Targeting the grassroots level,America’s PrepareAthon! is a nation-wide campaign to encourage the public to practice specific preparedness actions.  Communities are better prepared to withstand an emergency and recover more quickly if everyone is involved.  Events and activities will be held twice yearly to encourage individuals to discuss, practice and train for relevant hazards.
The focus of the first national day of action will be on preparedness for these hazards:
  • Tornadoes Hurricanes, Floods and Wildfires.  
Federal agencies supporting America’s PrepareAthon! are inviting national-level organizations and their stakeholders to participate in one of two informational webinars to learn more about the campaign.  You must register in order to access the webinar(s).  Each webinar will be recorded and available to view at a later time.
