FEMA Region V Administrator James Joseph was in Washington DC today for the Youth Preparedness Council at Red Cross HQ.

Great to see Ready.Gov partnering with everyone on today’s events.

Yep, spending time at HQ shoring a few things up with External Affairs.

Don’t worry, I wore a suit.

My afternoon was spent at the Pentagon.

Great to see old friends there.

Also proud to see Ready.Gov and FEMA External Affairs touting preparedness to peeps who work IN the Pentagon too.

Enhance your preparedness efforts by attending free local classes #NatlPrep #PrepareAthon

It’s still the third week of 2016 National Preparedness Month!

Trust me, you don’t need to wait for the earthquakes, and the poison arrows fall from the sky, and the pillars of Heaven (to) shake – just attend a few classes with local emergency management.

Don’t get frustrated…Preparedness is easy!

But seriously.

These classes can help better prepare you for many natural disasters, hazards, and/or common emergencies.


At the very least, they can detail what kind of actions will be taken by first responders in the response phase of the disaster.

In today’s class, we had a spirited discussion about MREs and preparedness kits. Even first responders and their respective families need emergency preparedness kits too.

Most of these short classes or day-long trainings are often free and scheduled well in advance. And if you can’t attend in-person trainings, there are many online classes available for no-cost on preparedness.


Yep, you guessed it, straight up good old networking with so many public safety pros.

Support your local first responders #NatlPrep #PrepareAthon

Third solid week of 2016 National Preparedness Month! This week, we honor and celebrate all of our all-hazards first responder who serve tirelessly throughout the country.


Every day, thousands of first responders (paid and volunteer) put it all on the line for the general public we know and people we don’t know. Day or night, countless individuals respond to the call and make a difference in each community.
