September is National Preparedness Month - Is Your Community Ready?

Wednesday September 01st, 2010

September is National Preparedness Month (NPM), a time to encourage Americans to take simple steps to prepare for emergencies in their homes, business, and communities. Take advantage of this opportunity to make sure your department, Fire Corps team, and community are prepared for all types of emergency situations.

National Preparedness Month is sponsored by the Ready Campaign in partnership with Citizen Corps and the Ad Council. The 2010 event asks Americans to work together to concentrate actions towards emergency preparedness.
