Washington, DC – September 1st heralds the start of the 7th Annual National Preparedness Month (NPM). Hosted by FEMA’s Ready Campaign, NPM 2010 is designed to encourage all Americans to take proactive measures in preparation for emergencies at home, at work and within their communities. As an NPM 2010 Coalition member, MSA is supporting the Ready Campaign objectives by promoting the readiness message across the National Capital Region. MSA will share preparedness information with our fellow members, clients, employees, and communities while spearheading activities to encourage hands-on planning for individual, neighborhood, and community preparedness.
Throughout the month MSA plans to make use of their own recently launched digital communication platforms to reach a broad audience and reinforce the necessity for all American’s to take preparedness more seriously. MSA also hopes to address the diverse cases which preparedness may prove challenging and necessitate unique solutions, such as families with services members, small children and those with communication disabilities.
The Campaign’s websites (ready.gov and listo.gov) and toll-free numbers (1-800-BE-READY, TTY 1-800-462-7585, and 1-888-SE-LISTO) provide Americans with free emergency preparedness information.
