Today, April 30th is America's PrepareAthon! It is an opportunity for individuals, organizations, and communities to prepare for specific hazards such as tornadoes, wildfires, floods, and hurricanes through drills, group discussions, and exercises. The goal of this campaign is to increase the number of individuals who take action to increase their preparedness, know how to mitigate damage and how to be safe, and understand which disasters could impact their community.
