Safety Readiness Day

On September 12, Boys & Girls Clubs across the nation are invited to join together and recognize National Preparedness Month and our Movement’s 2nd annual Readiness Day, when we focus on the most critical aspect of Club operations – the safety and wellbeing of members and staff.

Last year’s inaugural Readiness Day was a huge success as more than 400 organizations actively prepared their Clubs for an emergency. We anticipate even more Clubs will participate this year! Clubs are encouraged to host safety drills, conduct tabletop exercises, review emergency response procedures, and host activities that focus on emergency preparedness. Check out photos and videos from last year’s Readiness Day for inspiration!
