National Preparedness Month is a nationwide campaign held each September to educate about the importance of preparation before disasters occur. This year’s National Preparedness Month focuses on planning. The theme is “Disasters Happen. Prepare Now. Learn How.”
Each week of National Preparedness Month, the Ready Campaign emphasizes a unique aspect of preparedness:
Week 1: Sept 1-8 – Make and Practice Your Plan
Week 2: Sept 9-15 – Learn Life Saving Skills
Week 3: Sept 16-22 – Check Your Insurance Coverage
Week 4: Sept 23-29 – Save For an Emergency
The CSPDC provides year-round resiliency and disaster preparedness education and training in our region through its public awareness program, Shenandoah Valley Project Impact, and by coordinating the Staunton-Augusta-Waynesboro Community Emergency Response Team.
