About America’s PrepareAthon!SM

     America’s PrepareAthon! is a national community-based campaign that moves individuals from awareness to action by preparing for relevant hazards through group discussions, drills, and innovative communications-related products. The campaign increases the number of individuals who understand which disasters could happen in their community, know what to do to be safe and mitigate damage, and help their community do the same.
     America’s PrepareAthon! takes a Whole Community approach to disaster preparedness with registered preparedness actions at the grassroots level across the Nation. The campaign offers easy-to-implement resources to help individuals, organizations, and communities practice simple, effective actions. Preparedness actions can be scaled from individual actions to community-wide events.
