OEM Commissioner Bruno, FEMA Administrator Fugate Kick Off 10th Annual National Preparedness Month
What: The New York City Office of Emergency Management (OEM) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) kick off the 10th Annual National Preparedness Month and launch, in partnership with the AdCouncil, NYC-branded preparedness ads.
National Preparedness Month is a month-long, nationwide campaign, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, to promote emergency preparedness and encourage volunteerism. Each September, OEM organizes National Preparedness Month activities throughout the city by bringing together disaster relief and other volunteer organizations to distribute information at fairs, host demonstrations, and lead preparedness presentations.
In addition, a national ad campaign that focuses on educating families and their children on preparing for an emergency will be localized for New York City and installed on various bus shelters throughout the city.
