Although we encourage preparedness year-round, September is National Preparedness Month (NPM) when Americans can take action to prepare for various types of emergencies that could affect people where they live, work, and visit.
The Ready Campaign’s 2019 theme is “Prepared, Not Scared” and their social media toolkit provides graphics, hashtags, and content that can be customized to your needs.
Please use and share the weekly suggestions below to focus on your preparedness efforts and encourage others to get prepared too:
- September 1-7: Save Early for Disaster Costs
- September 8-14: Make a Plan to Prepare for Disasters
- September 15-21: Teach Youth to Prepare for Disasters
- September 22-30: Get Involved in Your Community’s Preparedness
