It has been 10 years since the events of 9/11, and this September, the Maricopa Community Colleges will mark the anniversary by participating in National Preparedness Month (NPM), an event that was founded after 9/11 to increase preparedness levels across the United States.

The event, now in its eighth year, is a nationwide, month-long effort hosted by the Ready Campaign and Citizen Corps, encouraging households, businesses and communities to prepare and plan for emergencies.

The Maricopa Community Colleges are participating this year by launching an internal awareness campaign that will offer weekly reminders and tips to employees across the Maricopa County Community College District.

This is the first year the Maricopa Community Colleges have participated in NPM.

For more information about the Ready Campaign and National Preparedness Month, visit Ready.gov or call 1-800-BE-READY, 1-888-SE-LISTO, and TTY 1-800-462-7585.
