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:
  • Week 1: September 1 – 9 Make a Plan for Yourself, Family and Friends
  • Week 2: September 10 - 16 Plan to Help Your Neighbor and Community
  • Week 3: September 17 - 23 Practice and Build Out Your Plans
