America's PrepareAthon!


About the Campaign

The Readiness and Emergency Management for Schools (REMS) Technical Assistance (TA) Center is proud to participate along with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and our Federal family in America’s PrepareAthon!, a nationwide, community-based action campaign aimed at increasing emergency preparedness and resilience. The nation’s fall America’s PrepareAthon! activities included National Preparedness Month in September, and National PrepareAthon Day!, which was held on September 30. National Preparedness Month serves as a reminder that we all must take action to prepare for the types of emergencies that could affect us where we live, work, and also where we visit. The following video featuring Secretary of Education John King highlights the importance of America's PrepareAthon! campaign:
