Are You Ant or Grasshopper? APHA Wants to Know

Get Ready Day is Sept. 21, with flu preparedness a prime focus but general emergency readiness also important. The American Public Health Association's new materials include a video to test your approach.

Get Ready Day is Sept. 21, with flu preparedness a prime focus but general emergency readiness also important. The American Public Health Association's new materials for this year's day include a cute video of good preparedness (the ant) vs. bad (the grasshopper).

Prudent ant fuels up the car, gets a flu shot, and ensures ample emergency supplies are ready in the home. Grasshopper does none of these and occasionally pays the price, but by the end all is well.

APHA began Get Ready Day in 2006 and observes it annually on the third Tuesday of September, during Ready month activities. The campaign promotes family and community preparedness for any kind of disaster, including flu, infectious diseases, and natural disasters. The campaign includes resources for the public and health workers, a blog, a campaign brochure, and more.
