A campaign by FEMA, called America's Prepapre-a-Thon, names today (April 30) as the first National Day of Action.
America’s PrepareAthon! is a nationwide, community-based campaign for action to increase emergency preparedness and resilience through hazard-specific drills, group discussions and exercises conducted at the national level every fall and spring.
The goal of this campaign is to increase the number of people who:
- Understand which disasters could happen in their community
- Know what to do to be safe and minimize damage
- Take action to increase their preparedness
- Participate in community resilience planning
