Ready Wisconsin:  In February 2003, the US Department of Homeland Security launched the Ready campaign. It is a national public service advertising campaign designed to educate and empower Americans to prepare for and respond to emergencies, including natural and technological disasters and potential terrorist attacks. The goal of the national campaign is to get the public involved and ultimately to increase the level of basic preparedness across the nation.  ReadyWisconsin is Wisconsin’s counterpart to the national campaign. ReadyWisconsin began in 2008 and is part of the Wisconsin Department of Military Affairs. It serves as a one-stop shop for emergency and disaster preparedness information and provides links to other relevant national, state, local, tribal and volunteer agencies.
