Presidential Proclamation -- National Preparedness Month
September is National Preparedness Month and FEMA is working hard to encourage youth organizations, K-12 schools, colleges and universities throughout the Nation to elevate the importance of preparedness and to encourage individuals, families and organizations to work together and take action to prepare for emergencies. Join us in an effort to build a more resilient nation by:
- Making a Pledge to Prepare and becoming a National Preparedness Coalition member.
- Participating in the October 18, 2012 “Great ShakeOut” earthquake drill.
- Utilizing the free FEMA Youth Preparedness resources to start a youth preparedness program or to learn more about discussing youth preparedness with children, parents, guardians, administrators and more.
There is no better time to Pledge to Prepare and help spread the message of preparedness!
