#NatlPrep Posts

National Preparedness Month begins this week!  To help spread the word, ReadyMontana and statewide partners will be sharing preparedness messages on social media, such as Facebook and Twitter.  If you or your organization would like to join in this campaign- just copy and paste some of these pre-designed messages onto your own pages!  Of course, this is a completely optional activity, and you are welcome to draft your own messages or use additional posts from: www.ready.gov/SeptemberVideos, images and other graphics can be downloaded from that page.

If you would rather just share our messages, follow us on Twitter or Facebook.  Remember to use the #NatlPrep hashtag so people can follow all related messages!
