FEMA's America's PrepareAthon! is just around the corner. Have you organized an activity? If not, consider joining millions of Americans on Thursday, April 30 as we work on ways to prepare our homes, neighborhoods and communities from hazards associated with natural disasters like wildfires, earthquakes, floods, hurricanes and tornados, and winter storms.  AP

America's PrepareAthon! is a great way to work with your neighbors and rally around a drill or group discussion or activity in an effort to make your community a safer place to live. 

How do you start? Visit the PrepareAthon! website to get project ideas, learn how to spread the word about your day of action, find valuable materials to share, and get answers to all of your questions. When you decide on a project, register it online and see how your actions contribute to a greater, safer America.

For those considering wildfire projects, don't forget that NFPA will be hosting an online webinar tomorrow (March 12 at 12 PM EST) that will focus on national Wildfire Community Preparedness Day on May 2 and show you how easy it is to apply your PrepareAthon! project to the Prep Day event.

We hope you consider joining us. And don't forget to share your projects with us. We can't wait to hear from you!
