Uh-oh! We had an oopsie!

Unfortunately, in our excitement to get the calendar published in the fall there were a few mistakes on the dates. But don't blame our doggies! This accident was all our fault. The June, July and December dates have been corrected as of March 2014. If you want a corrected copy, you can download the whole calendar again, or just the dates for those three months.

Be prepared! Learn how

Preparedness is important for you, your family and your community. Yet many people aren't ready for disasters.

Luckily, APHA's Get Ready campaign is here to help! We have information to help you prepare for a range of emergencies — from floods to disease outbreaks. We can help you build an emergency kit, teach your kids about preparedness or find out the best way to wash your hands!

(And, yes, we even have information for preparing your dogs and other pets for emergencies.) Find out how to get prepared now!
