This Year’s National Preparedness Month Sets Record For Number Of Coalition Members

September 1st, 2010 · 1 Comment

With today marking the first day of National Preparedness Month (NPM), I wanted to mention that Ready Campaign Deputy Director Rebecca Marquis told me this morning that this year’s NPM has set the record for number of coalition members.

As of last Friday, there were 3684 members breaking the biggest previous figure of 3200 two years ago. Coalition members “have pledged to provide information, host events and/or sponsor activities for their customers, members, employees, stakeholders and communities throughout the month of September.” Marquis attributes the number to “very strong outreach effort this year by all levels of government (federal, state and local) as well as the private sector.”

    I thought it a bit weird when I got an emergency preparedness booklet from the county at work today! First time I have every seen that.
