    National Preparedness Month Social Media Toolkit

    Include these key messages when creating content for social media posts.


    • #BeReady
    • #DisastersDontWait

    Week 1: Make a Plan

    Week 2: Build A Kit

    • Ensure your kit is stocked with essential items, including what is needed to protect you and your family from COVID-19.
    • Consider the unique needs of your family (example: families with infants should include formula, diapers & bottles).
    • Have enough supplies for several days and store items in airtight containers.
    • Help individuals with disabilities prepare for disasters.

    Week 3: Prepare for Disasters

    • The CDC has published a #PrepYourHealth Digital Media Toolkit with suggestions on how people can create a community before a disaster or emergency.
    • Sign up for emergency alerts so that during a disaster or emergency you receive immediate life-saving information from your state and local municipality.
    • If you live in an area that is prone to earthquakes, consider making improvements to your building to fix structural issues that could cause your building to collapse during an earthquake.
    • If you live in an area prone to wildfires, create a defensive space around your home by clearing debris or articles that could easily fuel the flames.
    • If you live in an area prone to hurricanes, install shutters for all your windows.
    • If your area is prone to flooding, keep important documents in a waterproof container. Also, protect your property by purchasing flood insurance.

    Week 4: Teach Youth About Preparedness

    • Youth are an important part of building a national culture of preparedness; children under the age of 18 make up nearly one-quarter of the entire U.S. population.
    • Promote good financial saving practices by providing clear steps to saving, budgeting, setting and meeting financial goals.
    • The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has additional resources online to teach youth financial capability.
    • Check out the Ready Kids website for tips on how to prepare your entire family.
