Prepare in a Year

Take the Prepare in a Year Challenge!
Disasters can happen anytime and anywhere, so are you prepared?
The consequences of a disaster are largely preventable. One hour of disaster preparedness activity each month will help you be ready for disasters - wherever they occur and whatever they are.

Choose one hour each month to complete the designated task, write it on your planning calendar and make it a family activity!
