In early September we blogged about National Preparedness Month, which is sponsored by Council.
Everyone can become better prepared for unexpected emergencies and disasters, especially during September, National Preparedness Month.
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. NASHVILLE, TN (WRCB) -- Numerous Tennessee agencies are asking Tennesseans to participate in National Preparedness Month, the annual month-long campaign designed to make emergency preparedness a priority.

Week 1: Family - Disaster preparedness starts with personal preparedness for you and your family.


For Preparedness Month 2015, the Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response plans to focus on communities of preparedness. James Bassham, Director of the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency, emphasizes the need for every individual, every family and every home to have at least a basic preparedness kit ready in case of emergencies.
Final 4 Days: Online - We will highlight the importance of sharing preparedness resources with your online social media community (social networks, apps, texting). The focus will be community resilience and preparedness on a neighborhood and community level.
Throughout National Preparedness Month we will be working with multiple organizations across the country to promote our multiple communities of preparedness.
Visit CDC’s National Preparedness Month webpage for links to all of our National Preparedness Month content.


We will talk about incorporating unique needs into emergency preparedness to ensure that the needs of the entire family are included in preparedness plans. 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.
