National Preparedness Month

September 2007 marks the fourth annual National Preparedness Month, a nationwide
effort held each September to encourage Americans to take simple steps to prepare for emergencies in their homes, businesses and schools. National Preparedness Month 2007 is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. The goal of the month is to increase public awareness about the importance of preparing for emergencies and to encourage individuals to take action. For the first time, the month will have weekly themes.
• September 1-8; Back-to-School
• September 9-15; Business preparedness
• September 16-22; Multicultural preparedness
• September 23-30; Home and family preparedness, including pets, older Americans and individuals with disabilities and special needs
