    • What is Ready Army? Ready Army is the Army Emergency Management Program’s proactive campaign to increase the resilience of the Army community by informing of relevant hazards and encouraging Soldiers, their Families, Army Civilians and contractors to, “Get a Kit. Make a Plan. Be Informed.”
    • What is Ready Army? Through outreach and education Ready Army calls our Army community to action and aims to create a culture of preparedness that will save lives and strengthen the nation.
    • Get a Kit When disaster strikes, emergency responders address the most critical needs and may not even be able to get to an area until it is deemed safe. While they work on behalf of the entire community, it is your responsibility to ensure your family’s well-being during times of crisis. Emergency kits to sustain for 72 hours are an essential tool for meeting that challenge.
    • Make a Plan • Ensure everyone understands the plan, and practices. • How to communicate during an emergency. • Consider what to do, where to go, what to take. • Plan for members with disabilities or special needs. • Include pets in family plan. • Report status through ADPAAS. • Identify a continental U.S. contact.
