History of National PrepareAthon! Day

Natural disasters like earthquakes, floods or wildfires require us to make decisions with little or no advance warning. Do you have an emergency plan with your family in case of an emergency?

National PrepareAthon! Day provides tools and resources to communities and citizens to help them prepare for their businesses, families, and schools in the event of a disaster. No matter how big or small, community members must be involved in keeping the crisis from turning into a tragedy. While our emergency resources provide one arm of the response team, many others continue to provide support. Some help with the supply chain while others coordinate the medical staff. Communication is also important to a successful plan. When everyone has a blueprint, our planning goes more smoothly.
