Disaster Preparedness: Building the resilience of communities

Disaster preparedness can significantly reduce the loss of life and livelihoods and plays an important role in building the resilience of communities. The United States observes National Preparedness Month every September to raise awareness on the importance of preparing for disasters and emergencies. 

In support of this initiative, led by FEMA's Ready Campaign and the Ad Council, the attached resource shares helpful information on disaster preparedness, climate change, and standards published by UL Standards & Engagement that help reduce and address the risks and hazards associated with disasters.
