Prepared, Not Scared.
That is the theme for this year’s National Preparedness Month. Annually, FEMA and other government organizations dedicate the month of September to educating individuals, families, businesses, and communities on the importance of taking action to prepare for emergency situations.The weekly themes include:
- Week 1 (Sept 1-7) - Save Early for Disaster Costs
- Week 2 (Sept 8-14) - Make a Plan to Prepare for Disasters
- Week 3 (Sept 15-21) - Teach Youth to Prepare for Disasters
- Week 4 (Sept 22-30) - Get Involved in Your Community's Preparedness
Though we hope you’ll consider disaster preparedness an important aspect of your risk management strategy all year long, this is a great time to check on your planning – both personally and in your organization. We’ve gathered a collection of resources to help you develop, implement, and test your emergency plans.
