National Preparedness Month
September 2014

National Preparedness Month happens each September. This is a great chance to rededicate yourself or your community to emergency preparedness by joining with the rest of the United States in preparedness actions. Consider joining America's PrepareAThon, a day of preparedness action on Sept. 30.


Utah will be holding the Utah Prepare Conference and Expo on Saturday, Sept. 27, at the South Towne Expo Center as our contribution to America's PrepareAThon.
