The Ready Campaign established four universal building blocks of emergency preparedness:  Be Informed, Make a Plan, Build a Kit, and Get Involved.  America’s PrepareAthon! builds on this foundation by encouraging millions of Americans to focus on a simple, specific activity that will increase preparedness.

America’s PrepareAthon! is a new national community-based campaign for action that focuses on increasing emergency preparedness through hazard-specific drills, group discussions and exercises.

National PrepareAthon! Days are held every spring and fall.  During National Preparedness Month we ask you, your family, community, school and workplace to take action by planning a National PrepareAthon! Day on or around September 30th.  We recommend using digital media tools as a way to promote National Preparedness Month, September 1st - 30th.

2015 weekly hazard focused themes:

  • Week 1:  September 1-5            Flood
  • Week 2:  September 6-12          Wildfire
  • Week 3:  September 13-19        Hurricane
  • Week 4:  September 20-26        Power
  • Week 5:  September 27-30        lead up to National PrepareAthon! Day on September 30
