2015 Hurricane Season
The 2015 Hurricane Season begins June 1 and we want everyone to Resolve 2B Ready! This year's Resolve to be Ready campaign focuses on 'Seasonal Preparedness' . The Ready campaign encourages families to prepare throughout the year for all weather hazards during winter, spring, fall and summer.
The Ready campaign makes an emergency preparedness resolution easy to keep by recommending families consider these three ideas when making a plan: who to call, where to meet and what to pack.
The campaign includes age-appropriate tools and resources to introduce conversations about disaster preparedness to children on www.ready.gov/kids, including a downloadable family emergency plan, emergency kit checklists and guidelines on how to make preparedness a year-round family activity.
