Get out your phone and add this date to your calendar right now and participate in NFPA's and special guests America's PrepareAthon and the U.S. Fire Administration in a one-hour Twitter Chat on Tuesday, April 7 at 2 PM EDT.  

What do you mean you don’t know what a Twitter chat is (or as some people call it a tweet chat)?  Well my friend, you’re not alone; my first experience happened about six months ago and it was truly fun and educational. It’s a live moderated Twitter event using a specified unique hashtag, where a bunch of people interested in the topic engage in a single conversation during a set timeframe. The moderator/guest host posts questions and participants interact by providing a tweet about the topic. It’s a fast paced, fun and engaging format where the time flies by super quickly. Try it and you’ll want to know when the next one’s going to be! Join us April 2 and see for yourself what it’s all about.

The hour-long chat will use the hashtag #WildfirePrepDay and will focus on projects that can be accomplished for Wildfire Community Preparedness Day, Saturday, May 2. The conversation will provide information on mitigation, communication and evacuation.

This is a great opportunity to hear about projects and ideas that can help you plan for Wildfire Preparedness Day and America’s PrepareAthon. Participating in both the PrepareAthon and Prep Day will get you moving towards making your community a safer place to live.

We’re looking forward to having you participate in the conversation!
