About May Day
One of the keys to living a successful life is preparation. With this in mind, as the fourth-largest city in the United States, Houston should be a leader in disaster preparedness. While our city and state officials take measures daily to ensure our safety, ultimately it will take a collaborative effort involving all of the citizens. To answer our call to leadership, the Houston Community Preparedness Collaborative has implimented May Day Houston, a citywide event that embraces May 1st as our official preparedness day. This day of action runs in tandem with FEMA's PrepareAthon campaign on April 30th, and Houston is proud to be at the forefront of grass-roots preparedness campaigns.
