American Public Health Association’s Get Ready Day on September 17
Launched in 2006, APHA’s Get Ready campaign helps Americans prepare themselves, their families and their communities for all disasters and hazards, including pandemic flu, infectious disease, natural disasters and other emergencies. The campaign includes free resources for the public and health workers, including fact sheets, a blog, a Twitter, podcasts, Q&As and a calendar of events. Use of Get Ready materials and information is encouraged. You may print and photocopy Get Ready fact sheets, game, toolkits, guides or other materials without permission and use them for educational activities at work, school, community fairs, health departments, town hall meetings, preparedness events, etc. APHA must be identified as the source of Get Ready materials.
