National Preparedness Month

Posted: 2012/09/01 in Preparedness

September is National Preparedness Month in the United States, a coordinated effort by multiple federal agencies to promote preparedness for disasters and other emergency situations in order to make people aware of their basic needs, how they can mitigate damage or loss of life and property, and to increase readiness for such events. The goal is to encourage people to plan for emergencies so that when they strike there is a greater likelihood of safety and survival. Zombie Awareness International uses the zombie apocalypse as an extreme situation because we believe if you are prepared for the zpoc you will be prepared for anything.

Below is a list of links to various agency websites promoting National Preparedness Month. Take the time to click through them to prepare yourself and your family for emergencies. Being prepared could make all the difference in the world.
