September…National Preparedness Month: Resilience is Your Best Defense

Ready, Set, Prepare! Resilience is Your Best Defense


Start Your Route to Resilience Today

September is National Preparedness Month.

Join EPA on the Route to Resilience as we highlight the resources available to help your utility be ready to Assess, Plan, Train, Respond, and Recover in the event of a water sector emergency.

Each week, we will focus on a different step of the Route and explore how you can take action to build water resilience and protect your community.
