Get Ready Day
Everyone should be prepared for any emergency. This is why Get Ready Day exists. Each year, it is held to encourage families, individuals, and communities alike to think about what they should do in the event that of natural disasters, pandemic illness, infectious diseases, or other crises.
The Public Health Association established the day in the mid-2000s. The Get Ready website provides a wealth information for those who are interested.
A way to raise awareness about the importance of being prepared for any kind of emergency is to plan an event. Individuals can discuss emergency plans with their families and friends.
Talks can be held at schools, colleges, or community centers to give advice and literature on how to prepare for possible dangers and disasters.
