As the month comes to an end, we want to take a moment to thank everyone who took steps to get prepared for disasters and joined the national preparedness community. All across the country, families, businesses, communities and organizations held preparedness events educating others about emergency preparedness.

Although National Preparedness Month is just about over, we hope you’ll continue to encourage others to make a family plan and to host preparedness community outreach events, fairs, workshops, webinars and trainings.

Have a great weekend!
