Marion County Emergency Management
September in National Preparedness Month!
Updated September 13, 2017
This September, National Preparedness Month (NPM) will focus on planning, with an overarching theme “Disasters Don’t Plan Ahead. You Can.”
Week 3: September 17-23; Practice and Build Our Your Plans
(to be updated)
Week 2: September 10-16; Plan to Help Your Neighbor and Community
Helping Neighbors empowers community leaders to involve and educate individuals from their community about simple steps one can take to become more prepared. Forty-six percent of individuals expect to rely a great deal on people in their neighborhood for assistance within the first 72 hours after a disaster. Do you know your neighbors? See our Citizen Corps Council page for more information on how to be involved!
Week 1: September 1-9; Make a Plan for Yourself, Family & Friends
Begin putting together a plan by discussing these 4 questions with your family, friends, and/or household to start building your emergency plan.
1. How will I receive emergency alerts and warnings?
2. What is my shelter plan?
3. What is my evacuation route?
4. What is my family/household communication plan?
tions can be found in Alerts & Emergencies
