Celebrate Get Ready Day with new resources from APHA

Tuesday, Sept. 20, 2022 is Get Ready Day! We celebrate Get Ready Day on the third Tuesday of every September, which is also National Preparedness Month. Get Ready Day is a chance for people to prepare their homes and their loved ones for emergencies like natural disasters or infectious diseases. Here are some tools you can use to share and celebrate Get Ready Day with us!

APHA's summer interns have recorded a podcast with tips about emergency preparedness, and different preparedness topics you may not have thought of before, such as climate change. Listen to the podcast or read a transcript now. 

The Get Ready team has also released two new infographics: one about the importance of masking as the COVID-19 pandemic continues, and one about flooding. 

You can also share the newly updated COVID-19 fact sheet from APHA, which answers questions like "why do I need a booster?"

To learn more about Get Ready Day and emergency preparedness throughout the year, follow Get Ready on Twitter or visit the Get Ready website. Happy Get Ready Day!
