September is National Preparedness Month: Urge Residents to Prepare Emergency Plan

Monday August 21st, 2017
The Federal Emergency Management Agency wants to make sure that every resident has an action plan in place when disaster strikes. Township supervisors, emergency management coordinators, and others can help spread the theme of National Preparedness Month: “Disasters Don’t Plan Ahead. You Can.”
 
FEMA has an entire toolkit of information and outreach ideas at www.ready.gov/september. The agency will stress different themes throughout the month, including the need for multi-generational and individual preparedness and community service, as a lead up to National PrepareAthon! Day on September 30.
 
Townships can urge residents to get involved, or at least stay informed, by sharing information on their website and through social media and the township newsletter, and by holding special events.
 
Townships and their residents can also get preparedness information anytime at www.readypa.org.
