National Preparedness Month Recognizes the Importance of Maintaining Disaster Readiness
September is designated National Preparedness Month to remind all first responders of our shared responsibility to maintain readiness. EMS has an important role in increasing awareness within our communities of the need to prepare for disasters. To help EMS practitioners and our communities prepare for disasters and mass casualty events, NAEMT aggregates resources on our website. Ready.gov also provides resources via the web and Twitter to help EMS practitioners #beready.
