ReadyNC CERT's PrepareAthon! is a community-based campaign for action with an emphasis on increasing emergency preparedness. In September 2017, which is Disaster Preparedness Month, we are challenging every CERT in NC to host an event in their community that will highlight your team's existence and recruit new members to a Basic Training Class. Maybe you'll do a mock event in the middle of town, or host a disaster preparedness event - the possibilities are endless! Please let us know what you're doing so we can advertise it here!

A few teams have great projects going on during other times of the year, and NC-CERT has decided to recognize those efforts here, as well as those events taking place in September. Preparedness is year-round in NC!
