Lubbock County OEM Reminds Citizens that September is National Preparedness Month

LUBBOCK, TX (NEWS RELEASE) - The Lubbock County Office of Emergency Management (OEM), in cooperation with Ready Campaign and PrepareAthon, is excited to announce September has again been declared as National Preparedness Month.

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

We can 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. The goal of NPM is to increase the overall number of individuals, families, and communities that engage in preparedness actions at home, work, businesses, school, and places of worship.
