Webinar to Kick Off National Preparedness Month (NPM) 2009

Wednesday, April 15, 2009 at 2 p.m. EST

This September, National Preparedness Month 2009 will focus on changing perceptions about emergency preparedness and will help Americans understand what it truly means to be “Ready.” We will illustrate how preparedness goes beyond fire alarms, smoke detectors, dead-bolt locks and extra food in the pantry, and help you communicate important preparedness messages to your family, your business and your community with a new series of customizable materials.

On the webinar, we’ll walk you through our plans for NPM and outline how you can join with us in encouraging Americans to get a kit, make a plan, be informed and get involved.

More detailed information will follow in the upcoming weeks, but please mark your calendars now! In the meantime, if you have any questions feel free to contact us at ready@dhs.gov. For more information about National Preparedness Month, visit www.ready.gov.
