Emergency Preparedness Month provides an opportunity to raise awareness for the important work being done to ensure our communities are safe, healthy and ready for emergencies. The Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) Office of Preparedness and Emergency Management is sponsoring a statewide campaign to encourage Massachusetts residents, families and communities to make plans and prepare for public health and medical emergencies, threats, and disasters. Be sure to read on for more details about this year’s planned activities!
