Office of Emergency Management and Homeland Security (OEMHS)

National Preparedness Month is Almost Here!

The Montgomery County Office of Emergency Management and Homeland Security is gearing up for National Preparedness Month (NPM) in September by conducting and supporting a number of events to help our community prepare for disasters.  Registration is open for many of them, so check our calendar below for a list of these events and information about how to register.  We are still planning other events, so also check our website frequently for future additions!

Be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook for preparedness tips throughout the month of September, as well information about other events that we will be participating in. Throughout the month of September, we may be using the twitter polling feature to conduct a few polls on emergency preparedness and provide some information to you on preparedness. Be sure to use the hashtag #MoCoPrepares on social media when promoting or attending NPM events so that we can help promote your event and share our community's involvement in NPM activities. 
 
If you would like to plan or are planning your own preparedness event in your community, feel free to include us!  You can use the Speaker Request form on our website to request a speaker.  If you need some of our emergency preparedness outreach materials for the event, you can email Emergency.Management@montgomerycountymd.gov or call 3-1-1 to make that request.  
 
We look forward to seeing you at our National Preparedness Month events!
