    September is National Preparedness Month
    September 1 marks the start of National Preparedness Month, and serves as a reminder that we all must take action to prepare, now and throughout the year, for the types of emergencies that could affect us where we live, work, and visit. This year’s theme, “Disasters Don’t Plan Ahead. You Can.” encourages everyone to make a plan, partner with neighbors and community, train to be a citizen responder and practice preparedness. Each week of National Preparedness Month has an individual focus:

      Make a Plan for Yourself, Family and Friends
    • Week 2: September 10 - 16
      Plan to Help Your Neighbor and Community

      Practice and Build Out Your Plans
    • Week 4: September 24 - 30
      Get Involved! Be a Part of Something Larger

  • Happy National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day!

    In 1937, Ruth Graves Wakefield of Whitman Massachusetts must have been curious what a little bit of chocolate would add to her cookies. While working at the Toll House Inn, she added cut-up chunks of semi-sweet Nestle chocolate bar to a cookie recipe. The cookies were a huge success and in 1939 Wakefield signed an agreement with Nestle to add her recipe to the chocolate bar's packaging. In exchange for the recipe, Wakefield received a lifetime supply of chocolate. The Nestle brand Toll House cookies were named for the Inn.

  • Is your organization prepared for an active shooter?

    In recent years, the active shooter threat has become more of a reality. Between 2014 and 2015, according to the FBI, the United States experienced nearly six times as many active shooter events as during the period between 2000 and 2001. Is your organization fully prepared to respond to an active shooter?

  • National Arson Awareness Week

    Next week is National Arson Awareness Week (May 7-13, 2017)

    community_watch.300x300Each year for Arson Awareness Week (AAW), the U.S. Fire Administration gathers and shares information to raise awareness of arson or youth firesetting and provide individuals with strategies to combat these problems in their community.

    This year's theme is Arson prevention at houses of worship: Fire Prevention & Public Education / Outreach Materials & Educational Programs / Arson Awareness

    Help community leaders increase awareness about how to prevent arson at houses of worship.
    Spotlight recent arson fires at houses of worship in United States.

    Preventing Arson at Houses of Worship Webinar

    Each year for Arson Awareness Week, the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA) gathers and shares information to raise awareness of arson or youth fire-setting and provide individuals with strategies to combat these problems in their community. Arson Awareness Week will be from May 7-13 this year and USFA is providing shareable content about how to help community leaders increase awareness about how to prevent arson at houses of worship.

    The burning of a house of worship not only devastates the affected congregation, but wounds the entire community. Whether the motivation behind the arson is hate or reckless vandalism, a congregation views it as an attack on their beliefs and values. Arson robs congregations of their valuable assets, lives and property. Arson destroys more than the buildings used as houses of worship; it can devastate a community, resulting in the decline of the neighborhood through increased insurance premiums, loss of business revenue, and a decrease in property values.

    Houses of worship are particularly vulnerable to fire damage because they’re often unoccupied for long periods of time, and in many cases, in rural areas. Rural properties will generally sustain more severe damage – even with an accidental fire – since discovery and response time may be delayed.
