Public Health Preparedness

There are many reasons to prepare your health for an emergency. They start with your family and friends and extend to your neighbors and community at large. But most Americans do not have supplies set aside or plans in place to protect themselves or their family’s health and safety in the event of  natural disaster, a power outage, or a flu pandemic.

The good news is that it is never too late to prepare for a public health emergency. You can take actions, make healthy choices, and download free resources to help you prepare for, adapt to, and cope with adversity.

National Preparedness Month – September

Preparedness is a year round activity, however, every September is highlighted as National Preparedness Month; a time to recognize the importance of being prepared for an emergency before the emergency actually occurs. It’s important to take steps to prepare for an emergency in your home, school, work, and place of worship because an emergency can happen anytime, anywhere.
