“There’s Nothing Stronger than the Heart of a Volunteer”
National Preparedness Month (NPM) is an annual campaign to encourage Americans to take steps to prepare for emergencies in their homes, schools, organizations, businesses, and communities. NPM is led by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and is sponsored by the Ready Campaign in partnership with the Citizen Corps. While September is the month for recognizing national preparedness, the goal is to engage the public to make preparedness a part of their daily lives every day and not one single month.
This September marks the ninth annual NPM. This year’s theme is “Pledge to Prepare - Awareness to Action”. FEMA is asking the public -- individuals, business, and organizations -- to take specific action steps by doing at least one of the following:
- Learn about emergency hazards - including home fires -and their appropriate responses
- Make a communications plan
- Build an emergency kit
- Get involved in preparedness in their community.
