FEMA launches 'PrepareAthon' campaign
WASHINGTON (4/23/14)--The Federal Emergency Management Agency--FEMA for short--is launching a "PrepareAthon!," a nationwide campaign to improve the country's resilience during and after an emergency situation.

Registration is open now for the April 30 event--being billed by FEMA as the first National Day of Action.  FEMA says participants will learn what to do before a tornado, wildfire, flood, or hurricane strikes their community.  Credit unions have helped their members and communities through each one of these natural disasters in recent years.

The session will share preparedness tips for family, community, and business.  It will provide preparedness resources, such as:
  • "How-to" guides;
  • Preparedness playbooks;
  • Promotional materials;
  • Events calendar;
  • Discussion groups; and
  • Additional resources tailored to specific hazards and audiences.
Use resource link to register.
