nationalpreparedenssmonthnpm-2020

September is National Preparedness Month (NPM) and a great time to plan for and practice safety with your family, co-workers, school, neighbors, and yourself! Consider taking the following steps each week during September to strengthen your knowledge of preparedness:

  • September 1-5: Make A Plan: Talk with your family and create an emergency plan;
  • September 6-12: Build A Kit: Identify and set aside emergency supplies to keep at home. Don’t forget to pack supplies in case you need to leave your home or evacuate;
  • September 13-19: Prepare for Disasters: Know what disasters and hazards could affect your area and take steps to prepare for them; and
  • September 20-26: Teach Youth About Preparedness: Share preparedness advice with your kids and their friends. These tips about staying safe can be fun and easy!
