Register Now for National Preparedness Month: “A Time to Remember. A Time to Prepare,” Encourages Americans to Take Simple Steps to Prepare for Emergencies.

This September not only marks the ten year anniversary of 9/11, it is also National Preparedness Month (NPM) which focuses this year on “A Time to Remember. A Time to Prepare.”  During September, we will remember those lost, honor our first responders, and renew our commitment to preparedness.  To this end, we urge you to make a stand and join the NPM Coalition.

Becoming a coalition member it easy and free. It takes 97 seconds to register to become a Coalition member. Even if you registered last year, you need to do it again to be part of the team, part of the solution this year.

As a National Coalition Month member, private sector entities take steps, large and small, to increase preparedness of businesses, employees, customers or communities. We urge you to do something meaningful, measurable and visible this year.  We would love to hear back from you on the activities you have planned and are available to brainstorm with you on big ideas that will have a dramatic impact. 

How do you get started?  Once registered, you will have access to a toolkit and resources that include all sorts of ideas; website, social media, newsletter, and publication content; Ready Business public service announcements; presentations; collateral customizable with your logo; brochures; material, such as Make a Family Emergency Plan and Emergency Supply Kit; bill stuffer template; and much more.  You will be able to contribute/access the NPM events calendar, share success stories, and participate in discussion forums. In the near future, we will send you business preparedness resources, including more than 54 webinars in September, business preparedness web sites, and other materials.

We don’t just want you to register – we encourage you to ask everyone in your network to register too. Please feel free to forward this message with your endorsement and post this widget on your e-mail signature, your social media and your websites.
