America’s PrepareAthon! is a nationwide, community-based campaign to increase emergency preparedness and resilience through hazard-specific drills, group discussions, and exercises conducted at the national level every fall and spring. Its goal is to increase the number of people who —
- Understand the hazards that affect their community
- Know what to do to be safe and mitigate damage
- Take action to increase their preparedness
- Participate in community resilience planning
In the spirit of America’s PrepareAthon!, UT Dallas encourages you to take the Preparedness Pledge, to Do-One-Thing, to better prepare yourself for all hazards. When you take the pledge you will be entered to win a NOAA [National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration] Weather Radio.
Your next opportunity to take the UTD Preparedness Pledge happens this September. Come back then and take the pledge!
