[ARCHIVED] September is National Preparedness Month


September is National Preparedness Month (NPM) and a great time to plan for and practice safety in our homes and our communities. Municipalities should encourage their constituents to take the following steps each week during September to strengthen your community’s 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!

And if you’re a social media user, follow FEMA on social media platforms: Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook using the hashtag #BeReady.
