September is National Preparedness Month

Join Polygon in participating in National Preparedness Month this September. This year’s theme is, “Be Disaster Aware, Take Action to Prepare.”

What is National Preparedness Month?

PrepareAthon! encourages individuals and companies to focus on a simple, specific activity that will increase their preparedness. It is a community-based campaign to spur action focusing on increased emergency preparedness through group discussions, exercises, drills and disaster planning. We encourage you to get your workplace, family and community to take action and prepare. One way to do this is to partake in National Prepareathon! Day on September 30th.

Emergency Preparedness Checklists and Resources:

  • How to Prepare A Business for Natural Disasters
  • What to Include in the Document Recovery Section of a Disaster Preparedness Plan
