America’s PrepareAthon! is a new, nationwide action-based campaign that sets aside two days during the year for people to take specific steps to prepare for specific hazards. The first National Day of Action is April 30 and emphasizes taking actions to prepare for these four hazards: Tornadoes, Wildfires, Floods and Hurricanes.
