NPM Week 3: Preparing Through Service

Printer-friendly version

September 11 – 17 is week three of National Preparedness Month.  The theme for this week is “Preparing Through Service.” September is recognized as National Preparedness Month (NPM) which serves as a reminder that we all must take action to prepare, now and throughout the year, for the types of emergencies that could affect us where we live, work, and also where we visit.

This week, we wanted to make sure you knew about the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Open House taking place on Tuesday, September 20th from 6:30-7:30pm at City Hall.  Joining the Brisbane CERT is a great way to get involved AND serve your community.  Come and learn how CERT educates individuals about disaster preparedness!  For any questions, please contact Shelley Romriell at sromriell@ci.brisbane.ca.us.

September is National Preparedness Month

Printer-friendly version

Don't Wait.  Communicate.

This is the theme for this year's National Preparedness Month, as disasters don’t always occur when we are together with our family and friends.  It’s important to take time now to plan what you will do in an emergency.  It only takes a few minutes to talk through the greatest risks that can affect where you live, work or go to school.  

This September, make an effort to create & practice your family emergency planBy having a conversation or making a plan, families can have more confidence and be better prepared when the next event happens. This month, we'll be bringing you tips on how you can #GetReady!
