Emergencies can happen at any time– at home, at work, at school, or while you’re in transit. Don’t wait. Communicate.
That’s this year’s theme by Ready, a national campaign behind Emergency Preparedness Month that helps educate and empower Americans to prepare for and respond to emergencies including natural and man-made disasters. Metro will help get the word out on Twitter and Facebook, as each week this month, they will focus on a different type of emergency and you can learn everything from how to prepare for a flood to knowing what to do during a power outage.
National Emergency Preparedness Month culminates on September 30 with a national day of action, National PrepareAthon! Day, a grassroots campaign for action to increase community preparedness and resilience.
