Kicking Off National Preparedness Month #NPM16 #NatlPrep #PrepareAthon

Kicking Off National Preparedness Month

National Preparedness Month
National Preparedness Month starts September 1. We’re kicking things off August 28 – September 3 to promote this national campaign to prepare individuals, families, and communities for disasters and other emergencies. This year’s theme is “Don’t Wait. Communicate. Make Your Emergency Plan Today.”

Each week of National Preparedness Month has a designated theme:
  • Week 1 (August 28-September 3): Kickoff to National Preparedness Month
  • Week 2 (September 4-10): Preparing Family and Friends
  • Week 3 (September 11-17): Preparing Through Service
  • Week 4 (September 18-24): Individual Preparedness
  • Week 5 (September 25-30): Lead Up to National PrepareAthon! Day
Join us by accessing the 2016 National Preparedness Month Social Media Toolkit on the Ready Campaign website. There, you’ll find preparedness messages to share with family, friends, and colleagues. You’ll also find additional resources such as graphics, instructional videos, and public service announcements to support preparedness in your community.

Get ready! Get prepared! National Preparedness Month is coming soon.
