The Ipswich Public Health Department joins the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) in promoting emergency preparedness as part of the Know Plan Prepare campaign during September which is National Preparedness Month.
Know Plan Prepare is a statewide campaign to encourage residents, families and communities to make plans and prepare for severe weather, natural disasters or other emergency events. The campaign features local access television programming, online videos and resources and social media components developed by the DPH Emergency Preparedness Bureau, in partnership with state and local agencies.
Every step that we take to prepare ourselves and our families for emergencies makes our community stronger and more resilient when the unexpected happens. Now’s the time to be informed, plan ahead, and get prepared.
Go to www.mass.gov/KnowPlanPrepare to find information about individual and family preparedness, volunteer opportunities, and emergency planning for the whole community.
A limited number of complimentary Know Plan Prepare reusable grocery totes with an emergency planning guide are available in the Ipswich Public Health Office.
