Ready Fairfax

Ready Fairfax is a Fairfax County Office of Emergency Management preparedness program designed to educate and empower community members to prepare for, respond to and mitigate emergencies, including natural and man-made disasters. The goal of the program is to promote preparedness through public engagement. This is achieved through signature programs such as Student Tools for Emergency Planning (STEP), Preparedness Awareness Weekend (PAW), seasonal programs and social media engagement. 

Ready Fairfax asks you and your neighbors to take four actions: (1) stay informed about the different types of emergencies that could occur and their appropriate responses; (2) make an emergency plan; (3) build an emergency supply kit; and (4) get involved in your community by taking action to prepare for emergencies.
