National Preparedness Month – September 2012

Every September, the Army observes National Preparedness Month, emphasizing the importance of fostering a culture of preparedness to strengthen our ability to prevent, protect, mitigate, respond and recover from all emergencies. An all-hazard event — either natural or man-made — can occur at any time, and we must be prepared to react accordingly. Planning and preparation are the critical factors that enable the Army to continue vital missions before, during and after such emergencies.

Through Ready Army, a proactive community awareness campaign, we promote a culture of preparedness throughout the Army. The tenets of Ready Army are: Be Informed, Make a Plan, Build a Kit and Get Involved. The Ready Army website, www.acsim.army.mil/readyarmy provides recommended supply lists for 48-72 hour individual and family survival kits. Ready Army also offers various sources of information and resources for successful emergency planning.

Responsibility for the safety and resiliency of our Army lies with each member of the Army Family. Engagement among Army leaders, Soldiers, Families and civilians is pivotal to highlighting the role each individual plays in preparedness. Preparedness planning serves as a force multiplier, allowing leaders to dedicate time and energy on the most significant needs of the Army community.

During this year’s observance of National Preparedness Month, we ask leaders to plan and execute appropriate outreach events that actively promote an atmosphere of local hazard identification, risk mitigation and all-hazard planning. Army Strong!
