September is National Preparedness Month

More than 3,000 organizations are supporting emergency preparedness efforts and encouraging all Americans to get involved. To find suggestions for activities and events that your organization can use to promote and take part in National Preparedness Month (NPM), check out the 2013 NPM Toolkit. To access the Toolkit, you must become a member of the National Preparedness Coalition.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has created the National Preparedness Coalition, which allows individuals and organizations to participate in emergency preparedness awareness throughout the year. Coalition members have access to exclusive resources and the ability to collaborate with thousands of fellow members across the country. The Heritage Emergency National Task Force has joined the National Preparedness Coalition and urges other institutions to do the same. Join the Coalition and “Pledge To Prepare.”
