• September is National Preparedness Month

    National Preparedness Month (NPM) is recognized annually in September to encourage family and community disaster planning for not only a month, but every day, throughout the year. This year also marks the 20th anniversary of 9/11, where a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks against the United States took place on American soil on September 11, 2001.
    This year’s theme for National Preparedness Month is: “Prepare to Protect. Preparing for disasters is protecting everyone you love.”
    In coordination with the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Ready campaign, the Ohio EMA and ReadyOhio, we encourage households, county EMAs, businesses, schools, and places of worship to plan for emergencies by participating in the weekly themes for National Preparedness Month 2021.
