National Preparedness Month is a celebration celebrated every September to raise awareness of the importance of preparing for disasters and emergencies that could occur at any time. The centerpiece of OSHEPR's work is to develop disaster capacities for human and social service partners, improving knowledge and collaboration among service providers to prepare for action during crises and emergencies. In recognition of National Preparedness Month, OHSEPR is organizing seminars focused on the region (regions II, IV, VI, IX and X) to promote the important principles of disaster equity and to incorporate human services into preparedness, response and recovery to support individuals and families more vulnerable before, during and after disasters. The OHSEPR is committed to promoting equity in disaster operations to help ensure that the most vulnerable people receive adequate and comprehensive human services.

Exemptions and flexibilities for emergencies and disasters This resource is designed to provide information on the exemptions and flexibilities available to ACF beneficiaries during emergencies and disasters. Social inequalities are often exacerbated by disasters and can lead to uneven recovery outcomes for the most vulnerable disaster survivors. Test your safety plan, prepare a disaster kit with all the essentials, and explain to loved ones, especially children, what to do in the event of a disaster.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is helping to prepare the nation by hiring, training, qualifying and retaining a prepared workforce that is available to be deployed to support disaster survivors across the country. Creating a culture of preparedness among human and social service providers is a national opportunity to encourage individuals, households, communities and service providers to participate in preparedness activities that support marginalized and marginalized communities that are most at risk of suffering the impacts of disasters. September is National Preparedness Month, a time to raise awareness of the importance of preparing for disasters and emergencies that could occur at any time with or without notice. Translated into 27 languages, the Help After a Disaster brochure is a tool that can be shared in your community to help people understand the types of FEMA assistance that may be available to help individuals and families recover from a disaster.
