Get Involved! Be a Part of Something Larger

National Preparedness Month (NPM) concludes this week. The Colorado Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management hopes you will be inspired to get involved and become a part of something larger. Year round, millions of community members participate in America’s PrepareAthon, building the national momentum of preparedness. But twice a year, a national day of action, called National PrepareAthon! Day, focuses attention on the importance of creating a more resilient Nation by bringing together stakeholders, communities, and individuals to take preparedness action. In the fall, National PrepareAthon! Day takes place on September 30 in conjunction with NPM.

All month long we have discussed the importance of making a plan for you and your family, helping your neighbors and your community and practicing and building out your plans. This Friday is National PrepareAthon Day and gives you a chance to be a part of something larger. Organize your friends and neighbors to have a PrepareAthon party or gathering where you can exchange ideas on your personal emergency kits, family communication plans or even evacuation plans if your neighborhood were to be evacuated and you were not home.
