Come Celebrate National Safety Month With Us! Week 1 Focus: Emergency Preparedness

June is National Safety Month, and we are celebrating alongside the National Safety Council and thousands of organizations. Celebrate with us!

Did you know that preventable injuries are the fourth leading cause of U.S. deaths? Join us in observing National Safety Month as we work together to highlight leading causes of preventable injury and death so people can live their fullest lives.

Each week focuses on a different topic:

Week 1: Emergency Preparedness

Week 2: Slips, Trips, & Falls

Week 3: Heat-related Illness

Week 4: Hazard Recognition

Let’s kick off the month with a focus on Emergency Preparedness.

An emergency can strike anytime, from a fire or natural disaster to a chemical spill or heart attack. Knowing what to do in an urgent, unexpected situation can mean the difference between life and death.

“It’s really important to know how to do something,” said Carrie Bush, a first aid expert and program manager at the National Safety Council. “You never know when you’re going to need to use it. You’re more likely to save a life if you do something other than just calling 911.”
