Throughout September, CDC and more than 3000 organizations—national, regional, and local governments, as well as private and public organizations—will support emergency preparedness efforts and encourage Americans to take action. Week 1: Family - Disaster preparedness starts with personal preparedness for you and your family. Week 2: Neighborhood - Those in closest proximity to you during an emergency are most likely to be the first to offer help. Week 3: Workplace and School - Whether you are at work or home or your child is in school it is important for individuals to know specific threats and hazards in their area, emergency signals, evacuation routes, and locations of shelters in their community.
Final 4 Days: Online - We will highlight the importance of sharing preparedness resources with your online social media community (social networks, apps, texting).
For each topic in September, PHPR plans to release Public Health Matters blog posts, social media messages (including a Twitter chat), and graphics.


Also in September, all federal agencies will come together to promote the fall PrepareAthon. PrepareAthon messages will focus on specific hazards this fall: winter weather, earthquakes, hurricanes, wildfires, tornadoes, and flooding. Throughout National Preparedness Month we will be working with multiple organizations across the country to promote our multiple communities of preparedness. For Preparedness Month 2015, the Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response plans to focus on communities of preparedness. Visit CDC’s National Preparedness Month webpage for links to all of our National Preparedness Month content.
The PrepareAthon is a nationwide, community-based campaign for action to increase emergency preparedness and resilience through hazard-specific drills, group discussions and national level exercises conducted each fall and spring.


To see a full list of our partners and their National Preparedness Month activities visit our partnership resources. The focus will be community resilience and preparedness on a neighborhood and community level. We will talk about incorporating unique needs into emergency preparedness to ensure that the needs of the entire family are included in preparedness plans.
