Would Prince George’s County residents, businesses and visitors be ready if a disaster had direct impact on us? As the nation recognizes September as National Preparedness Month, communities across the country will work individually and collectively to provide opportunities for their stakeholders to learn more about what they can do to be prepared. In observance of National Preparedness Month, the Prince George’s County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management will present the 2013 Preparedness Conference. The theme, “Creating Resilient Communities” speaks to the need to ensure that everyone – individuals, families, the faith-based community, and businesses – understand their role in preparedness and the County’s responsibilities when disaster strikes. The conference will feature workshops, roundtables, panel discussions and Q&A sessions focused on providing information and insights on how we, as a community, can ensure our readiness in the event of an emergency.
