Release Number CB17-SFS.69
Component ID: #ti534066185

Presidential Proclamation

Since 2004, National Preparedness Month (NPM) is observed in the United States during September. Sponsored by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) within the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the goal of NPM is to “increase the overall number of individuals, families, and communities that engage in preparedness actions at home, work, business, school, and place of worship.” FEMA's Ready Campaign is a “national public service campaign designed to educate and empower the American people to prepare for, respond to and mitigate emergencies, including natural and man-made disasters. The goal of the campaign is to promote preparedness through public involvement.” President George W. Bush issued the first NPD proclamation in 2007.
