The National Preparedness Community

Building and Sustaining Preparedness: A National Campaign : Browse Recent Ideas

We want to increase outreach efforts and encourage everyone to take actionable steps to be prepared. In June, FEMA and the American Red Cross will host a workshop with experts in communication and behavior change to discuss preparedness messaging. We want to hear about your experiences in preparing for emergencies to help inform discussions during this workshop. Your posts on this topic will help us begin to develop a national campaign encouraging people to take actions in their everyday lives to prepare for disasters. This effort is a major part of Presidential Policy Directive 8 / PPD-8: National Preparedness - and it is one of the most visible ways the whole community will be involved in keeping our nation safe and resilient. Read and comment on others' ideas between now and June 18, 2012. We look forward to hearing from you now and as more topics are posted.
