There are many ways you can get involved to help further build a more resilient and prepared Marine Corps Community:

  • Take advantage of preparedness training opportunities offered by your installation Emergency Manager and/or Marine Corps Family Team Building.
  • Conduct family and neighborhood emergency drills.
  • Check to see if your neighbor and fellow Marine have the supplies they would need in an emergency.
  • Share the information you learn about emergency preparedness with your children and other adults around you.
  • Be part of the ranks of citizens who form the Nation's first line of defense against severe weather by becoming a NOAA's National Weather Service (NWS) SkyWarn Spotter—http://www.nws.noaa.gov/skywarn/
  • Participate in America’s PrepareAthon! Day, held twice a year on 30 April and 30 September and well as National Preparedness Month in September.
Ask your installation Emergency Manager for additional ways you can help.

Set your own course through any hazard: stay informed, make a plan, build a kit.
Live Ready Marine Corps.
