The ninth annual National Preparedness Month kicks off today September 1, 2012 with a “Pledge to Prepare” theme.
The NPM campaign, sponsored by FEMA, Ready and Citizen Corps, seeks to transform awareness into action by encouraging American families and businesses to take the necessary steps to ensure that their homes, workplaces and communities are prepared for disasters and emergencies of all kinds.
As a proud Coalition member once again, Fedhealth is encouraging everyone to take the pledge, join the team and help themselves, their neighbors, and their communities be Ready.
Some of our special projects and events planned for NPM 2012 and beyond include…
Spread preparedness messages As we do year-round, FedHealth will be sharing preparedness and safety information in our e-news and on various blogs and forums we contribute to; appearing on multiple podcasts; discounting our products while helping fund volunteer groups, nonprofits, schools and others … and much more!
