In support of Massachusetts’ Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) and Gov Baker’s proclamation of September as Emergency Preparedness Month, COSTEP MA is participating in “30 Days 30 Ways: 30 Days of Preparedness”. This initiative breaks down emergency preparedness into simple steps residents can take in 30 days to be more prepared by the end of the month. Each day, a new tip will be shared through our Twitter feed, @CostepMA, managed by COSTEP MA Board Members Molly Ogrodnik (Massachusetts Archives) and Kathy Griffin (Massachusetts Historical Society). Thank you Molly and Kathy!

Visitors to Mass.Gov/Ready can see the full list of 30 preparedness steps to do in 30 days, view general preparedness tips, and learn how to prepare for specific threats and hazards. 

During September, MEMA and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health will share information on their respective social media accounts about emergency preparedness topics including emergency planning, building an emergency kit, preparing for disasters, youth preparedness, ways to get involved in community preparedness, and more.
