2015 NATIONAL PREPAREDNESS MONTH (NPM)
2015 NPM Theme: Don't Wait. Communicate. Make Your Emergency Plan Today.
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.
