National Preparedness Month has ended!  However, we want to maintain the momentum and enthusiasm we’ve built over the past several weeks by providing you with ideas for activities and events you can plan to keep local communities engaged in disaster preparedness efforts, whether it’s at home or in the wider community.
As a reminder that Fire Prevention and Safety is a year-round activity,  FEMA’s Individual and Community Preparedness Division and
