September is National Preparedness Month

Each September, National Preparedness Month encourages and reminds Americans to be prepared for disasters or emergencies in their homes, businesses, and communities. The 2019 theme is "Prepared, Not Scared."

Homeowners, families, communities, and businesses can use this opportunity to understand more about preparing for disasters and reducing risks to health and the environment. This also includes cybersecurity.

National Preparedness Month is an annual event from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and Ready.gov. Learn more, watch videos, or sign up for emergency alerts from the Pima County Office of Emergency Management.
