Preparedness Choices for Every Day

America's PrepareAthon 10 ways
Whether it’s creating a family emergency communications planassembling or updating emergency supplies, or accessing alerts and warnings, we’re all encouraged to take preparedness actions for ourselves and those we care about. America’s PrepareAthon! highlights ten preparedness actions you can take.
Volunteering with a safety organization is another option. Consider volunteering for a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) that provides training in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medication operations. The training also emphasizes emergency preparedness for disasters that may impact your area.  
If you are interested in assisting your community and taking part in local preparedness projects, you can find a CERT Program in your area.
