Ipswich Public Health Department Encourages Individuals and Families to Plan Ahead for Emergencies
The Ipswich Public Health Department joins the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) in promoting emergency preparedness as part of the Know Plan Prepare campaign during September which is National Preparedness Month. In September, the Public Health Office will be offering residents complimentary emergency document bags, emergency planning guides, reusable grocery totes, flash lights and pill cases.
Know Plan Prepare is a statewide campaign to encourage residents, families and communities to make plans and prepare for public health and medical emergencies, severe weather, and natural disasters. The campaign features local access television programming, online videos and resources and social media components developed by the DPH Emergency Preparedness Bureau, in partnership with state and local agencies.
