September is National Preparedness Month, and in order to encourage New Yorkers and Harlemites to prepare for disasters the New York City Office of Emergency Management, the American Red Cross in Greater New York and the Ad Council have launched a new public service advertising campaign called Ready New York. The campaign asks individuals to get prepared by taking three simple steps:
1) Get an emergency supply kit.
2) Make a family emergency plan.
3) Be information about the different types of emergencies that could occur and the best responses to them.
We want you to be better prepared for emergencies in your homes, business and schools. Toward that end, we encourage you to review and share the following “easy-to-use” social networking link to the Ready New York City campaign website: http://www.readynyc.org / http://www.listonyc.org
o Includes video messages from Commissioner Joseph Bruno of the New York City Office of Emergency Management and American Red Cross in Greater New York CEO Terry Bischoff
o Links to news and information about the campaign.
Be safe, not sorry!
