                                       IS YOUR COMMUNITY PREPARED

September is the first month of fall, when kids head back to school, and our traditional month to focus on preparedness. 

This year's theme, “Don’t Wait, Communicate." focuses on family, community and individual preparedness. We're excited about the opportunity to help you and your family learn more about emergencies and how to be prepared whenever or wherever they strike.  

As is the tradition, each week of National Preparedness Month has a designated theme:  

•    Week 1 (September 4-10): Preparing Family and Friends

•    Week 2 (September 11-17): Preparing Through Service

•    Week 3 (September 18-24): Individual Preparedness

•    Week 4 (September 25-30): Lead-up to National PrepareAthon! Day, September 30    

More information about each of these themes is available on, where you can also find social media content, 2016 NPM logo, graphics, and more to share with your friends and family.
