September is National Preparedness Month, and READYColorado and the Governor's Office of Homeland Security are providing an opportunity to promote your individual or business disaster preparedness classes, workshops, and events on the READYColorado website http://www.readycolorado.com/.
The Colorado campaign was developed to encourage all citizens to enroll and participate in an upcoming disaster preparedness class during the month of September. Potential classes include CPR and AED training, First Aid, a CERT course, weather spotting, HAM radio, wildfire mitigation, pet first aid, etc. Any course, class, workshop, or event that increases citizen preparedness, or encourages mitigation efforts, is invited to share their information on the site. Every applicable class and event will be promoted on the READYColorado website's special National Preparedness Month section. To have your class included in the campaign send your information (please include the course name, a brief description, date, time, length, registration info, and a point of contact) to Cathy Prudhomme.
Share this opportunity with your local fire and police departments, sheriff's office, red cross, and non-profits too!
