September is National Preparedness Month (NPM) when Americans are encouraged to take action to prepare, now and throughout the year, for the types of emergencies that could affect us where we live, work, and visit.
The Ready Campaign recently released the 2017 NPM theme “Disasters Don’t Plan Ahead. You Can.” and toolkit, which includes graphics, hashtags, and social media content to help spread the word to others.
In addition to the overall theme, FEMA and the Ready campaign will be promoting different preparedness actions each week:
- Week 1: September 1-9 – Make a Plan for Yourself, Family and Friends.
- Week 2: September 10-16 – Plan to Help Your Neighbor and Community.
- Week 3: September 17-23 – Practice and Build Out Your Plans.
- Week 4: September 24-30 – Get Involved! Be a Part of Something Larger.
