Let’s make it personal: Add your logo to Get Ready materials

Free fact sheets and materials are a great thing, particularly when they come from a trusted source like APHA’s Get Ready campaign. Health departments, health workers groups and anyone else can download Get Ready materials and use them at health fairs, community meetings, school events — just about anywhere!

And while it’s nice having the APHA and Get Ready logos on all those preparedness materials, wouldn’t it be great if your logo were on there too? Luckily, the Get Ready campaign makes it easy — and free — for you to add your organization’s logo to its fact sheets, games and other materials. And you don’t even need permission! Just visit our “Add Your Logo” Web page and follow the super-easy step-by-step instructions.

No special software on your computer? Not a problem! The Add Your Logo page has instructions for using either Word or Acrobat to customize your Get Ready docs. Just save ‘em, print ‘em and you are ready go. (While you are at it, why not save them and post them on your website too?)

About two dozen Get Ready materials are customizable with your group’s logo, including our new hand-washing fact sheets; information on winter weather, floods, earthquakes and heat waves; and stockpiling resources. You can even add your logo to materials for kids. And if that wasn’t enough, logos can be added to more than a dozen Spanish-language materials too. ¡Que bueno!

We’d love to hear how you use our Get Ready materials, so once you’ve added your logos and shared them with your community, drop us a line. (
