National Preparedness Month (NPM) is an observance each September to raise awareness about the importance of preparing for disasters and emergencies that could happen at any time. The 2021 theme is “Prepare to Protect. Preparing for disasters is protecting everyone you love.”
PrepareMetroKC will share tips each week during the month of September focusing on a different aspect of preparedness for individuals, families and communities.
In addition to these weekly tips, families are encouraged to use the resources on PrepareMetroKC to make a plan, build a kit and stay informed about disasters in our area.
