Learning for Life: Take the 30 Days, 30 Ways Challenge

September is National Preparedness Month. Make preparedness fun for the entire family by taking the “30 Days, 30 Ways Challenge” in support of National Preparedness Month and leading up to National PrepareAthon! Day, September 30. This month-long preparedness game began in 2010 by the Clark Regional Emergency Services Agency (CRESA) in Vancouver, Washington to encourage people to complete one simple task each day to enhance their personal preparedness.

Get game rules, daily tasks, and other information about this fun and engaging challenge by visiting: www.30days30ways.com.

Game time starts Sept. 1. As you complete your tasks, be sure to add them to the America’s PrepareAthon! website to be counted as a participant in this national effort for action to get people better prepared for emergencies.
