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. Final 4 Days: Online - We will highlight the importance of sharing preparedness resources with your online social media community (social networks, apps, texting). 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. National Preparedness Month in September serves as another good reminder that readiness for natural disasters is critically important every day.
For Preparedness Month 2015, the Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response plans to focus on communities of preparedness.

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. Since its inception in 2004, National Preparedness Month is observed each September in the United States of America. The effects of the disaster can linger for days, weeks, or even months or years, but most of these devastating effects can be tempered with effective planning and preparedness. Visit CDC’s National Preparedness Month webpage for links to all of our National Preparedness Month content. Prepare and maintain an emergency preparedness kit with enough supplies on hand to be self-sufficient for at least three days, and preferably up to one week. 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. PG&E is sharing preparedness information with customers, especially for natural disasters that are more common to Northern and Central California, such as earthquakes, wildfires and winter storms. Now that you have the foundation for your preparedness plans, get out there and get prepared!
To ensure PG&E’s preparedness for catastrophic events, the utility routinely conducts exercises focused on strengthening its emergency response and coordination between employees, first responders and the communities it serves.
