Take the Preparedness Pledge

Be Smart. Take Part. Prepare.


America’s PrepareAthon! is a nationwide, community-based campaign to increase emergency preparedness and resilience through hazard-specific drills, group discussions, and exercises conducted at the national level every fall and spring. Its goal is to increase the number of people who —

  • Understand the hazards that affect their community
  • Know what to do to be safe and mitigate damage
  • Take action to increase their preparedness
  • Participate in community resilience planning

In the spirit of America’s PrepareAthon!, UT Dallas encourages you to take the Preparedness Pledge, to Do-One-Thing, to better prepare yourself for all hazards. When you take the pledge you will be entered to win a NOAA [National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration] Weather Radio.

Your next opportunity to take the UTD Preparedness Pledge happens this April. Come back then and take the pledge!
