Get excited for community preparedness! Your favorite safety friends like our very own Sparky the Fire Dog, along with Smokey Bear, Lassie and others, will be participating in a live Twitter chat focused on preventing and preparing for hurricanes, tornadoes, wildfires, earthquakes and more!
The ‘Safety Friends Unite for Preparedness’ Twitter chat takes place on September 22 at 3PM ET, don't forget to check it out using the hashtag #SafetyChat!
This Twitter chat is part of FEMA's National Preparedness Month. “Don’t Wait. Communicate. Make Your Emergency Plan Today.” is the message emergency managers are sharing with people through the month of September.
Additionally, September 30 is National PrepareAthon! Day. You are encouraged to participate by doing a simple, specific action or activity to improve your preparedness and your family’s preparedness; or it can be something more elaborate that involves your neighborhood, your place of worship, your entire workplace or your community.
Visit www.ready.gov or www.ready.gov/prepare for more information on America’s PrepareAthon! You can find tools to stage your own emergency preparedness drills, as well as register any preparedness activities for you or your community.
