September is National Preparedness Month (NPM). NPM is sponsored by FEMA’s Ready Campaign in partnership with Citizen Corps and the Advertising Council and is designed to encourage Americans to take simple steps to prepare for emergencies in their homes, businesses, and communities.
This year marks the seventh annual NPM and it will focus on encouraging Americans to work together to take concrete actions toward emergency preparedness.
