Are You Ready PA?

Preparing for the unexpected is important all year. However, National Preparedness Month (NPM) is an opportunity to learn ways that you can help be better prepared at home, work, school, and more.

Preparing before something happens reduces anxiety and losses that accompany disasters. Much like a fire drill, knowing what to do in an emergency makes the situation a little less frightening for everyone. We prepare so we can be ready.

Watch this NPM video message from PEMA Director Randy Padfield.
