National Preparedness Month (NMP) is recognized each September to promote the importance of family and community disaster planning. The theme for 2021 is "Prepare to Protect: Preparing for disasters is protecting everyone you love."
As our community continues to respond to COVID-19, flooding, and other severe weather incidents, there is no better time to learn about being prepared.
Each week in September a different topic is covered in a newsletter written by Williamson County's Emergency Management team. Click the images below to access each one, and start preparing!
