NPM is held each September to encourage Americans to make sure they are prepared for disasters or emergencies in their homes, businesses and communities. Public and private organizations, groups and individuals can join the NPM Coalition and pledge to carry out at least one activity during the month to highlight the importance of family and business emergency preparedness. Register as a National Coalition member by visiting www.ready.govand clicking on the National Preparedness Month banner.
September is National Preparedness Month. This year we are asking you to take action now – make a plan with your community, your family, and for your pets. Plan how to stay safe and communicate during the disasters that can affect your community. We ask everyone to participate in America’s PrepareAthon! and the national day of action, National PrepareAthon! Day, which culminates National Preparedness Month on September 30.
