National Preparedness Month 2010 has concluded and we would like to thank you for your partnership with the Ready Campaign to help educate the public about the importance of emergency preparedness. This year’s campaign brought together a diverse group of nearly 5,000 national, regional, state and local organizations to provide information, host events and/or sponsor activities for their customers, members, employees, stakeholders and communities throughout the month of September.

We encourage you to continue to use the resources and materials provided on our website to make sure your constituencies are Ready. The National Preparedness Month Calendar will be updated threw the end of October, so please continue to post your events at and we will promote them on our site. In the coming weeks we will post highlights of different events that were held throughout the country during NPM 2010. We hope these can be used to continue to engage the public and promote this important emergency preparedness message.

Additionally, please visit the Ready Campaign’s main site ( for all the resources you may need to educate and empower Americans to prepare for and respond to emergencies.
