Fire Corps Releases National Preparedness Month Resource Center

Thursday, 14 June 2007

National Preparedness Month is fast approaching and Fire Corps is encouraging citizens to start planning now. To help in this effort, Fire Corps has released an online National Preparedness Month Resource Center. This Resource Center contains links to key informational resources relating to general emergency preparedness as well as specific topics including fire safety, terrorism, hurricane and other weather-related disasters, and pandemic influenza.

Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), National Preparedness Month gives your Fire Corps program a chance to highlight the importance of emergency preparedness and promote individual involvement in your community. This nationwide effort is held each September to encourage citizens to take simple steps to prepare for emergencies in their homes, businesses, and schools. The goal is to increase public awareness about the importance of being ready for emergencies and to encourage individuals to take action. Initiatives your Fire Corps can take range from teaching public life safety lessons to hosting an open-house for your department. The possibilities are endless – bound only by your imagination.
