Join us for an update on National Preparedness Month. Please take this opportunity to learn about the recent updates to our website and the additional tools we have produced to help support your efforts as National Preparedness Month Coalition Members. For those joining for the first time we will discuss how you can be an active coalition member. National Preparedness Month has grown every year, and with your help, this will be our most successful and coordinated effort to date!
The many disasters happening across the United States, and throughout the world, have focused the public on emergency preparedness like never before. In hosting a preparedness event, you will allow your organization or business to provide your community the opportunity to take action and get Ready. As you know, this year will also mark the ten year anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. As we encourage citizens to prepare we want to focus on honoring the local first responders that keep us safe, promote volunteer programs that help us prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters, and continue promoting the message that preparedness is a shared responsibility with the whole team, including you.
The theme for this year’s National Preparedness Month is A Time to Remember, A Time to Prepare.
Learn how you can do YOUR part to prepare America. JOIN US on Tuesday for this special Update on the 2011 National Preparedness Month Webinar. DON’T MISS this great opportunity to:
