This organization educates on how to make an emergency plan, what kinds of supplies to place in your disaster supplies kit, and how to prepare for specific emergencies. Ready.gov not only wants adults involved, but kids are encouraged to be educated on emergency preparedness as well. Every September, they host National Preparedness Month to heighten awareness of specific threats and appropriate responses. The Red Cross is another organization that cares about Emergency Preparedness.
