Prepareathon is a national event sponsored by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). FEMA’s Prepareathon encourages people and communities to take action to prepare and protect themselves against disasters. The goals of the event are for people to understand which disasters could affect their community, know what to do to stay safe, take action to increase preparedness, and improve their ability to recover from a disaster.
There will be a virtual kickoff on Tuesday, September 1st at 10am on the City of Roanoke Facebook Page. Click here for more information.
