Planet Ready is an online web platform that provides freely available disaster preparedness and resilience training, exercises, courses and games.

The tool was launched in 2018 and reached 65,000 businesses within 100 miles of the coast from Texas thru Maine with a 15 minute hurricane resilience training. In addition, participants from 21 countries, 45 US states and 7 Canadian provinces prepared for a long duration power outage. This innovation represents a way to build a culture of preparedness at low cost, global accessibility, and for individuals and families, houses of worship, and businesses. The goal of Planet Ready is to be available in English, French, Spanish, Chinese and Arabic by the end of 2019.

Planet Ready is promoting awareness of all hazards for individuals, families, houses of worship and small & medium businesses. The objective is to facilitate shared learning by featuring exercises, courses, games, trainings and best practices from a global community of practice. Learning is measured through quizzes, surveys, and demographic instruments, and recognized with certificates of completion.
