September is National Preparedness Month and this year’s theme is “A Time to Remember. A Time to Prepare.” With September right around the corner, I wanted to make sure you knew about the different online tools you can use to organize your community and spread the word about National Preparedness Month and emergency preparedness.
First, sign up on our website to access collaboration tools, templates, calendars, and other resources. You’ll join a community of thousands of individuals, emergency management professionals, businesses, and voluntary and faith-based groups who are sharing preparedness information so that everyone can be better prepared before a disaster strikes. We’re encouraging everyone to register and it only takes 97 seconds (yes, we timed it).
Second, if you’re a web manager or your organization has a website, you can embed our “National Preparedness Month” widget on your site (in either English or Spanish). Copy this code for the widget:
<iframe width="240" height="400" scrolling="no" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" frameborder="0" src="http://www.fema.gov/help/
widgets/npm.html" title="National Preparedness Month"></iframe>
<iframe width="240" height="400" scrolling="no" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" frameborder="0" src="http://www.fema.gov/help/widgets/npm_esp.html" title="Mes Nacional de la Preparación""></iframe>
Third, copy and paste this graphic into your email signature or place it on your website:
Leave me a note after you put the widget on your site or paste the graphic in your email signature. And remember, it only takes 97 seconds to register at http://community.fema.gov/. Thanks for helping us spread the word.
