National Preparedness Month

September is National Preparedness Month (NPM).

The Be Ready to Resolve Campaign will help Americans understand that preparedness goes beyond fire alarms, smoke detectors, dead-bolt locks and extra food in the pantry to change perceptions about emergency preparedness and help Americans understand what it truly means to be "Ready."

Nearly 5,000 organizations joined the Be Ready to Resolve Campaign in promoting this message across the country in homes, schools, businesses, and communities.
