Call for Community Preparedness

Information taken from an email message from Ready.gov …

Craig Fugate, Administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), recently spoke at the annual TEDMED conference. In his talk, Fugate put out the call for the public to become greater involved in protecting their community from disasters. Here’s a quote from his talk:

“As individuals, we are always thinking about staying healthy and protecting our bodies from disease, whether through vaccinations, doctor appointments, physical activity or other ways. Shouldn’t we be thinking about protecting our communities in the same way?” said Fugate. “We are always encouraging individuals to visit www.Ready.gov and take the steps to be more prepared before disaster strikes, but I’m here to ask for your help and to recruit you for your ideas on how we can better prepare communities, entire communities, for disasters.”
