FEMA is offering free brochures for American Legion posts and TALARC members who will be holding events during Disaster Preparedness Month in September.

The agency suggests that individuals and posts place orders for FEMA materials to use with events during National Preparedness Month as soon as possible. The shipment of publications and brochures from the FEMA distribution warehouse usually takes four to six weeks, with standard shipping. An order placed today should arrive around the end of August. These materials will be great resources for Citizen Corps Councils, partners and affiliates to distribute at events or in their communities.

Find the Ready order form here: www.ready.gov/sites/default/files/Ready_OrderForm_June2012.pdf; or contact the FEMA Distribution Warehouse directly at (800) 480-2520 to place an order.
