"Maine Prepares" 2009 Special Newspaper Supplement Available Online

"Maine Prepares" for all seasons


September 23, 2009


Maine Emergency Management Agency, in partnership with the Bangor Daily News, has published a special insert to educate Maine citizens on the importance of disaster awareness and individual preparedness. This is the fourth annual edition of "Maine Prepares".

The special insert, published the weekend of September 19-20 2009, reached as many as 300,000 households and businesses across the State by running in the Bangor Daily News, Maine Sunday Telegram, Lewiston Sun Journal, and other major weekend newspapers.

If you missed it in your paper, the insert is available on the Bangor Daily News website

This edition of Maine Prepares features 12 calendar pages, with a different theme for each month, starting off with September. September is National Preparedness Month, the ideal time for you to get serious about preparing for emergencies and disasters.

Throughout the next 12 months, readers should keep this guide handy, and review each month as it comes around. They will find tips to get ready for the flu and the cold winters, and learn how to make a financial first-aid kit, disaster kit for the home and car, and an emergency plan for the entire family. With this year's concern about the H1N1 flu virus, there is also plenty of helpful information about this strain of flu, and staying healthy throughout flu season every year.

Preparedness is important all year round. This year's insert offers a guide to get Mainers through any emergency, whatever the time of year.
