Be Ready for Sudden Disasters with York County Emergency Management’s PrepareAthon!

America’s PrepareAthon! is a grassroots campaign for action to get people better prepared for emergencies by conducting hazard-specific group discussions, drills, and exercises. Throughout the year, America’s PrepareAthon! helps communities and individuals across the country practice preparedness actions before a disaster or emergency strikes.

Year round, millions of Americans participate in America’s PrepareAthon!, building the national momentum of preparedness. But twice a year, a national day of action, called National PrepareAthon! Day, focuses attention on the importance of creating a more resilient Nation by bringing together stakeholders, communities, and individuals to take preparedness action. In the fall, National PrepareAthon! Day takes place on September 30 in conjunction with National Preparedness Month. In the spring, it takes place on April 30.
