EPA WSD Invites You to Celebrate National PrepareAthon Day

April 30th is National “PrepareAthon” Day.  This is a national opportunity for individuals, organizations, and communities to prepare for specific hazards through group discussions, drills, and exercises.  The campaign’s goal is to increase the number of individuals who:

  • Understand which disasters could happen in their community;
  • Know what to do to be safe and mitigate damage;
  • Take action to increase their preparedness; and
  • Participate in community resilience planning.

Disasters and emergencies can happen at any time, often without warning.  Please join EPA and other Federal partners to participate in the Count Down to National PrepareAthon Day of Action by taking simple actions each day to improve resilience.  To participate in the count down and receive daily reminders register here.  Additional information is available on the attached flyer.
