Launched in 2006, APHA's Get Ready campaign helps Americans prepare themselves, their families and their communities for all disasters and hazards, including pandemic flu, infectious disease, natural disasters and other emergencies.
Major highlights of the campaign include a national Get Ready Day, held the third Tuesday of each September; Get Ready: Set Your Clocks, Check Your Stocks, which encourages people to check their emergency stockpiles when they change their clocks for daylight saving time; and the Get Ready Scholarship.
The campaign includes free resources for the public and health workers, including fact sheets, a blog, a Twitter, podcasts, Q&As and a calendar of events. Download our campaign brochure for an overview.
