National Preparedness Month - September 2017

Disasters don’t plan ahead but you can. Become prepared with family and friends this September in honor of National Preparedness Month.



By taking small steps like making and practicing a plan, being ready to help a neighbor and becoming involved,  YOU can help San Mateo be ready.

This September, National Preparedness Month (NPM) will focus on planning, with an overarching theme “Disasters Don’t Plan Ahead. You Can.”

We should all take action to prepare! We are all able to help first responders in our community by training how to respond during an emergency and what to do when disaster strikes — where we live, work, and visit.
