America's PrepareAthon!
The past few updates have talked about earthquakes and related hazards, such as tsunamis, landslides, and liquefaction. Now, you can also join America's PrepareAthon! to get prepared for other natural hazards including flood, hurricane, wildfire, tornado, and winter storm. Your ShakeOut participation counts you as a participant in America's PrepareAthon!
In addition you can also register other preparedness activities held any day of the year, and for any hazard at ready.gov/prepare.
America's PrepareAthon! is an effort to increase community preparedness and resilience. There are 10 ways to participate like downloading alerts and warnings, holding a drill, or collecting critical documents. Year round, millions of Americans participate in America‚Äôs PrepareAthon! building the national momentum of preparedness.

- Download and share posters, graphics, drill broadcast recordings, drill manuals, and other materials, available on the Resources tab of the ShakeOut website.

- Get items from the ShakeOut Shop such as t-shirts, buttons, participation stickers, drill leader kits, and more.
