September Is National Preparedness Month ... Are Your Residents Ready?

Monday August 26th, 2019
The Federal Emergency Management Agency wants to make sure that every resident has an action plan in place when disaster strikes. During National Preparedness Month, township supervisors, emergency management coordinators, and others can help spread the message of being prepared for any kind of natural or manmade emergency. This year's theme is "Prepared, Not Scared."
 
FEMA has an entire toolkit of information and outreach ideas at www.ready.gov/september.Weekly themes highlight different aspects of disaster preparedness:
 
Week 1: Sept. 1-7 -- Save Early for Disaster Costs
 
Week 2: Sept. 8-14 -- Make a Plan to Prepare for Disasters
 
Week 3: Sept. 15-21 -- Teach Youth to Prepare for Disasters
 
Week 4: Sept. 22-30 -- Get Involved in Your Community's Preparedness
 
Townships can urge residents to get involved, or at least stay informed, by sharing information on their website and through social media and the township newsletter, and by holding special events.
 
Townships and their residents can also find preparedness information anytime at www.ready.pa.gov.
