Community Awareness Day

Community Awareness Day is an annual event in Jefferson County, Alabama, hosted by the Jefferson County Emergency Management Agency. It began in the fall of 1999 under the Federal Emergency Management Agency program "Project Impact." Since then, FEMA has discontinued expansion of "Project Impact," but existing Project Impact communities have developed partnerships within their community to sustain the Project Impact program emphasizing 'disaster resistant community' concepts.

The primary goal of Community Awareness Day is to improve the level of disaster awareness among school children and adults by increasing their knowledge of disaster preparedness and preventive techniques. Community Awareness Day achieves this goal by exposing the public to a variety of people and services. The list includes:

Fire, Rescue and Police Services
Community Agencies
Local Meteorologists

The Jefferson County Emergency Management Agency teams up with local sponsors and volunteers from across the community to increase awareness of the newest disaster preparedness techniques.
