National Preparedness Month

National Preparedness Month (NPM) is recognized annually in September to encourage family and community disaster planning not only for a month, but throughout the year. This year also marks the 20th Anniversary of Patriot Day, when terrorists attacked the United States on September 11, 2001 and nearly 3,000 American lives were lost.

This year’s theme is: Prepare to Protect. Preparing for disasters is protecting everyone you love.

Follow Ohio EMA on Facebook and Twitter throughout September, for posts on Ohio’s weekly themes for NPM:

Week 1 (September 1-4): Make an Emergency Plan
Week 2 (September 5-11): Build Emergency Preparedness Kits
Week 3 (September 12-18): Volunteer within Your Community / Ohio CERT
Week 4 (September 19-25): Prepare for Disasters
