September 2010: National Preparedness Month

leave a comment »

Are you ready, are you prepared?

Prepared for what you might say. Are you prepared for emergencies in your home, business and/or community?

National Preparedness Month (NPM) is sponsored by the Ready Campaign in partnership with Citizen Corps and the Advertising Council. NPM is held each September to encourage Americans to take simple steps to prepare for emergencies in their homes, businesses, and communities.

September 2010 is the seventh annual NPM. This year will focus on encouraging Americans to work together to take concrete actions toward emergency preparedness. We are encouraging all Americans to join the readiness team and truly help themselves, their neighbors, and their communities be Ready.

Register your organization

You can register your organization to become a member of the NPM Coalition (CLICK HERE to register). Coalition members help to create and promote “a culture of preparedness in the United States.” Coalition members agree to promote preparedness any way they can in September. Membership is open to all public and private organizations, and registration is free:

Once you register you will receive access to the NPM Website where you can find a toolkit that includes templates, resources, and tips to assist you with promoting emergency preparedness. You will also find an NPM calendar where you can post your events and see what other organizations are doing in your community. In addition, you can share your success stories and read about the successes of others.

Your organization will also be listed on our Web site!

Think about helping promote emergency-preparation awareness by becoming a Coalition member today.
