September is National Preparedness Month!


30 Days, 30 Ways is a disaster preparedness game that started in 2010 by the Clark Regional Emergency Services Agency (CRESA) in Vancouver, Washington.


Each September,  one simple readiness task is posted daily. You can check our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram page for the specific daily task. We ask that you upload your answer on our Twitter and/or Instagram pages always using the hashtag #Mendo30Days30Ways .


Each day will have a different emergency preparedness theme and a daily winner will be selected from among the participants.


You can enter as many times as you would like on any or all of the social media platforms we're using.


Entries will be judged on their creativity, their relevance to the day’s theme and importance of the message.


Tips on how to use social media in the event of an actual emergency will be posted. One of our goals is to have as many people as possible learn how and where to get critical information during an emergency as well as how to communicate with us during an emergency.
