September is Disaster Preparedness Month
Each week during September, MAR will be highlighting an online resource. We will include both personal and professional preparedness information to inform our members about the vast array of disaster and emergency preparedness resources available.
Our first featured resource is Ready.gov which has instructional videos developed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), in partnership with the Advertising Council. The Ready Campaign sponsored videos (http://www.ready.gov.psa) encourage, educate, and empower Americans to prepare themselves, their families, and their communities to respond to all kinds of emergencies. These instructional videos are available in both English and Spanish. They also include American Sign Language and closed captioning.
