Support to Quit
Distracted Driving Awareness Month With ever increasing demands on our personal and professional time in today’s busy society, learning to juggle multiple tasks at once is something we all face daily.  As a result, a new traffic safety epidemic has emerged on America’s roadways that demand immediate attention: distracted driving.
Raising the Grade What does the data reveal about America’s health? The U.S. doesn’t have the top health care system – we have a great “sick care” system. We have great doctors, state-of-the-art hospitals and we’re leaders in advanced procedures and pharmaceuticals.
Colorectal Cancer Free Colorectal Screenings will soon be offered to those who qualify. If you’re 50+ talk to your physician about screening!

2015 National Preparedness Month

On behalf of the Ready Campaign, I invite you to join millions of Americans who have made a commitment to increasing the level of emergency preparedness for themselves, their family and their community.

September 1 is the first day of National Preparedness Month. We are encouraging everyone to participate in the theme, Don’t Wait. Communicate. Make Your Emergency Plan Today.

Now is a great time to make an emergency communication plan for your family. This month, we hope that you will spend time together with your family and talk about how you will contact each other and where you will meet should disaster strike.

National Preparedness Month culminates with National PrepareAthon! Day on September 30 when we turn our attention from awareness to action. If you have not already done so, please use this national day of action to practice your family emergency communication plan, and make sure everyone knows what to do and has the phone numbers they need to stay in touch.

Join America’s PrepareAthon! Visit Click on Be Counted, Add Your Activity and tell us how you, your family and friends, and community are getting more prepared. Your registration could motivate others to prepare!

Thank you for your interest in participating in National Preparedness Month. We look forward to seeing what you and your community will do!
