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.
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 NPM 2008 Overview to learn about some of the events and activities that took place across the country last year. And please don’t forget to add your events this year to our NPM 2009 Calendar.
We officially kicked off NPM 2009 with a webinar on April 15, 2009 containing an overview of this year’s goals and the resources that are available to NPM 2009 Coalition Members. If you were unable to join us for the webinar, please click below to view it now.
