America’s PrepareAthon: CodeRED from OnSolve urges residents to sign up for emergency notification software
National Preparedness Month isn’t until September, but there is no better time than now to evaluate current preparedness plans and make necessary improvements before a crisis occurs.
The CodeRED from OnSolve team works regularly with community leaders across the nation promoting the mass notification tools available and information residents need in the event of an emergency. In fact, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is leading the charge to encourage “prepareathons” year round to increase emergency preparedness and resilience. A nation as large and geographically diverse as the United States will see many different disasters over the course of the average year – from hurricanes to tornadoes and from wildfires to floods – so emergency preparedness is something everyone should have on their to-do lists.
A critical step in emergency preparedness is signing up for alerts in your community so disaster won’t take you by surprise. America’s PrepareAthon is the perfect time for the residents to take charge of their own preparedness by visiting their city or county website and signing up for notifications. This simple action could make all the difference in the event of an emergency. OnSolve offers community notifications and mobile alerting platforms that keep residents informed during the most critical times.
