Make and Practice Your Plan During National Preparedness Month
National Preparedness Month (NPM) 2018 begins on Saturday, September 1.
This year’s theme is Disasters Happen. Prepare Now. Learn How. Each week will highlight tips and steps to take an important preparedness action.
The theme for the first week of NPM, September 1-8, is Make and Practice Your Plan. Learn how with steps from the Ready Campaign:
• Make an emergency plan, including how you and your family/household will communicate after a disaster.
• Sign up for alerts and warnings in your area.
• Learn your evacuation zone and make an evacuation plan.
Take action this September to prepare your family, organization, or community. Register your preparedness activity and participate in the National Day of Action on September 15.
