September is National Preparedness Month

The Red Cross is Ready to Help You Prepare for Disaster

Some 70 federal disaster declarations are made annually, with hundreds of businesses and communities facing unexpected disruption - and up to 40 percent of businesses affected by a disaster never re-open. September is National Preparedness Month - and the right time to take action to protect your organization.

When it comes to disaster planning, most operations are not as prepared as they would like to be. It can be difficult to know where to begin - and where to go from there. The Red Cross Ready Rating Program can help.

The no-cost membership program is designed to help businesses, organizations and schools become better prepared for disasters and other emergencies. Members join the self-paced program and complete a 123-point self-assessment of their level of preparedness.

All in one place, Ready Rating members have access to one-of-a-kind tools, resources and information for evaluating and improving their ability to withstand disaster, maintain operations and protect lives and property. Whether you are taking your first steps or have a fully-functioning emergency management program, the Ready Rating program can help you achieve a higher level of preparedness.
