2014 National Preparedness Month
Since its inception in 2004, National Preparedness Month is observed each September in the United States of America. Sponsored by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) within the Department of Homeland Security, National Preparedness Month encourages Americans to take steps to prepare for emergencies.
The theme this year, “Be Disaster Aware…Take Action to Prepare,” encourages all Americans to turn awareness into actions. All residents and communities nationwide need to create disaster plans and supply kits for themselves, loved ones, friends, and co-workers.
