NPM 2009: Are you ready or are you Ready?

We hope your organization will join the Ready Campaign and our partners Citizen Corps and the Ad Council in spreading the emergency preparedness message this September for the sixth annual National Preparedness Month (NPM).

NPM 2009 will focus on changing perceptions about emergency preparedness and will help Americans understand what it truly means to be Ready. We will illustrate how preparedness goes beyond fire alarms, smoke detectors, dead-bolt locks and extra food in the pantry and help you communicate important preparedness messages to your family, your business and your community with a new series of customizable materials.
