FEMA and TSA Administrators to Hold National Preparedness Month Event at Reagan National Airport, Announce Combined Efforts

Tomorrow, Sept. 12, 2023, FEMA Administrator Deanne Criswell and TSA Administrator David Pekoske will hold a press event at Reagan National Airport (DCA) to announce their partnership and combined efforts during National Preparedness Month, including a new Public Service Announcement. At DCA, both leaders will issue a call to action to all travelers ahead of what will be another busy holiday travel season.

National Preparedness Month takes place every September, and during this month-long campaign, FEMA and its partners emphasize the importance of being ready when a disaster strikes, or when other emergencies occur. Every traveler who passes through TSA’s airport security checkpoints has been impacted by a weather or other emergency event. FEMA and TSA will announce steps they are taking to prepare and how travelers can prepare as well.
