DPH’s Office of Preparedness and Emergency Management (OPEM) has announced details of its “Know, Plan, Prepare” campaign to alert individuals and organizations about disaster preparedness materials. September is designated as emergency preparedness month, in which people are asked to think about how they’ll prepare for public health and medical emergencies, threats, and disasters. The initiative is especially timely this year as the first hurricane of the season, Dorian, approaches the Caribbean and Florida.
Various brochures and materials, in multiple languages, are available through the Massachusetts Health Promotion Clearinghouse
. And OPEM’s website
has the complete list of resources and guidance.
