September Is Here! Are You Ready?

Thoughtful Thursday KNOWSY Readers, how is everybody doing? Did you have a restful #LaborDay weekend with your family and friends? Is the weather still Hot and Sunny where you live or are you starting to see the first glimpses of Fall?
For today's post I am doing one of my #PublicSeviceAnnouncements, as I have mentioned before I receive quite a bit of emails from various sites one of these comes from Ready.gov and it has to do with #September being referred to as National Preparedness Month. This site gives a lot of great information for all kinds of emergencies, especially weather related.

Welcome to National Preparedness Month!

September is National Preparedness Month



On behalf of the Ready Campaign, I invite you to join millions of Americans who have made a commitment to increasing the level of emergency preparedness for themselves, their family and their community. 

September 1 is the first day of National Preparedness Month. We are encouraging everyone to participate in the theme, Don’t Wait. Communicate. Make Your Emergency Plan Today

Now is a great time to make an emergency communication plan for your family. This month, we hope that you will spend time together with your family and talk about how you will contact each other and where you will meet should disaster strike. 

National Preparedness Month culminates with National PrepareAthon! Day on September 30 when we turn our attention from awareness to action. If you have not already done so, please use this national day of action to practice your family emergency communication plan, and make sure everyone knows what to do and has the phone numbers they need to stay in touch.  

Join America’s PrepareAthon! Visit www.ready.gov/prepare. Click on Be Counted, Add Your Activity and tell us how you, your family and friends, and community are getting more prepared. Your registration could motivate others to prepare!

Thank you for your interest in participating in National Preparedness Month. We look forward to seeing what you and your community will do!

Acting Director of FEMA Ready Campaign

In this toolkit, you will find useful tips on how to promote preparedness by using graphics, videos and text to promote through social media. 


Each week in September will focus on a specific hazard. We will post resources and tips to raise awareness to help you learn more about the hazard.
