2017 NPM Theme: Disasters Don't Plan Ahead.  You Can. 

September is National Preparedness Month.  This year we are asking you to take action now – make a plan with your community, your family, and for your pets.  Plan how to stay safe and communicate during the disasters that can affect your community. 

We ask everyone to participate in America’s PrepareAthon! and the national day of action, National PrepareAthon! Day is on Friday, September 15, 2017.

More information about PrepareAthon! can be found at:
