WASHINGTON — FEMA and the Ad Council kick off National Preparedness Month with new public service announcements from FEMA’s Ready Campaign that promote the importance of preparing children and teenagers for possible emergencies and disasters.

Involving young people in preparedness efforts can help youth, families and communities be prepared and able to respond when faced with disasters.

The campaign products this year, with the tagline “Prepared, Not Scared,” encourage parents, teachers, and caregivers to visit Ready.gov/kids so they can teach our youth what to do when a crisis occurs, and how to take preparedness actions together.

Prepared, Not Scared

“Emergency preparedness should be top of mind for every American,” says Chief Campaign Development Officer, Michelle Hillman. “For families with kids in the home, it’s especially important. This campaign will continue to empower families to have peace-of-mind knowing their children know what to do in case of a disaster.”This preparedness effort by the Ready Campaign follows 16 years of educating the American public about disaster and emergency preparedness. In that time, $1.6 billion in donated media enabled the campaign to reach millions of Americans and encouraged more than 100 million visits to the campaign’s website, Ready.gov.Each week of National Preparedness Month, the Ready Campaign will emphasize a unique aspect of preparedness:

  • September 1—7:       Save Early for Disaster Costs
  • September 8—14:     Make a Plan to Prepare for Disasters
  • September 15—21:   Teach Youth to Prepare for Disasters
  • September 22—30:   Get Involved in Your Community’s Preparedness
