GPO Resources for National Preparedness Month

Sep 6, 2018

September is National Preparedness Month, and this year’s theme is: “Disasters Happen. Prepare Now. Learn How.” The U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) has compiled a list of government document resources and publications on this topic.

See the list.

The goal of National Preparedness Month is to increase the number of individuals, families and communities that engage in preparedness actions. In 2003, the Department of Homeland Security launched the National “Ready Campaign” to promote preparedness through public involvement, by empowering Americans to prepare for, respond to, and mitigate emergencies including natural and manmade disasters. This year’s theme focuses on planning, from learning life-saving skills such as CPR to taking practical safety steps like shutting off water and gas.
