5th annual National Preparedness Month Asks Americans to Take Steps to Prepare

WASHINGTON, DC – First Aid is proud to be participating in the 5th Annual National Preparedness Month (NPM) in September. Sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) Ready Campaign, NPM is a nationwide effort designed to increase awareness as well as encourage individuals, families businesses and communities to take action and prepare for emergencies.
This year, the Ready Campaign and its DHS partner, Citizen Corps, are encouraging Americans to take simple steps to prepare including: Get a Kit; Make a Plan; Be Informed about the different types of emergencies and their appropriate responses; and Get Involved.

"We are so excited to be part of National Preparedness Month," says Brian White, CEO of First Aid " Preparedness is often overlooked until it is too late, and people find themselves without the basic necessities to survive for 24-72 hours after an emergency. We hope that by through awareness, we are able to help families across America have the piece of mind that if there were a disaster, everyone would be taken care of."

This is the first year First Aid has participated in NPM.
