National Preparedness Month 2008
Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) Ready Campaign
Join the Ready Campaign and our DHS partner Citizen Corps this September for the fifth annual National Preparedness Month (NPM). Register now to be a part of the 2008 NPM Coalition — visit http://ready.adcouncil.org.
This year the focus of NPM is to encourage citizens to take important preparedness steps:
In 2008, NPM had a record number of more than 3,200 NPM Coalition Members who worked to create a culture of emergency preparedness in the United States. We invite you to read the National Preparedness Month 2008 Journal to learn about some of the events and activities that took place across the country last year. In addition, President George W. Bush issued a proclamation declaring September as National Preparedness Month. We hope your organization will join us in spreading the emergency preparedness message this year - and every year! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us at Ready@dhs.gov.
