Don’t Wait. Communicate. Make Your Emergency Plan Today.

Submitted by Elizabeth Kiss

September is National Preparedness Month (NPM). This year’s theme is “Don’t Wait. Communicate. Make Your Emergency Plan Today.” Learn more at http://www.ready.gov/september.

NPM gets communities ready for National PrepareAthon! Day, Wednesday, September 30, 2015. Encouraging everyone to take action, America's PrepareAthon! urges communities to prepare for hazards that impact their areas the most.

September is also the month each year that the K-State Research and Extension Family Resource Management Program Focus Team has chosen for Prepare Kansas, an annual online preparedness challenge. If you aren’t familiar with Prepare Kansas, check out our blog at http://blogs.k-state.edu/preparekansas/.

As we wrap up the 2015 online challenge, we encourage each of you to take action on September 30th as part of America's PrepareAthon! Learn more and decide what you will do to become better prepared with the 10 Ways to Participate in America’s PrepareAthon! infographic at http://www.community.fema.gov/take-action/activities.
