FEMA: Hurricane Preparedness Playbook

America’s PrepareAthon! is a grassroots campaign for action to increase community preparedness and resilience for disasters. The campaign offers free resources for households and organizations to discuss and practice plans and safety measures to improve resilience for specific disasters.
Planning and preparing can make a big difference in being safe and keeping your doors open after a disaster. The ability to maintain or quickly reestablish business operations or organization processes requires a focus on preparedness, advance planning, and relationships with external partners and community leaders. This Prepare Your Organization for a Hurricane Playbook provides you, as a community leader or employer, with tools and resources to support your preparedness efforts and to help you conduct an America’s PrepareAthon! Day of Action. Everyone has a role to play to prepare for a disaster. All employers and organizations— from local businesses and municipalities to schools, universities, and faith- and community-based organizations—are essential components of the community and can help people and groups to be more prepared.
