September Is National Preparedness Month

Aug 18, 2014

The theme for this year’s National Preparedness Month is “Be Disaster Aware, Take Action to Prepare.” Since its inception in 2004, National Preparedness Month is observed each September to encourage Americans to take steps to prepare for emergencies in their homes, businesses, schools, and communities.

FEMA's Ready Campaign, the correlating public education outreach campaign, disseminates information to help the general public prepare for and respond to emergencies, including natural disasters and potential terrorist attacks. Help your community prepare - head over to for more information about National Preparedness Month, including weekly breakdowns and many other resources as we move towards September! The 2014 National Preparedness Month logo and toolkit will be coming soon!
