Don’t Wait, Communicate About Disaster Preparedness!
September 28, 2016 3-4pm ET
Twice a year, America’s PrepareAthon brings together organizations and individuals to
- learn what hazards are most likely to affect their communities
- take action to increase preparedness
- participate in community resilience planning
The next America’s PrepareAthon takes place on September 30—the final day of National Preparedness Month. The theme this year is “Don’t Wait, Communicate: Make Your Emergency Plan Today.” https://www.ready.gov/september
The September 28 webinar will use themes from America’s PrepareAthon to demonstrate the role librarians play in disaster preparedness. Learn how to get your community ready for specific hazards, and find out what resources you have at your fingertips.
