Resolving to be ready in 2011—important gifts for important people.
From winter storms to floods even to pandemic contagion, all disasters have one thing in common: They remind us of the importance of pre-disaster preparedness. But good intentions need to turn into tangible deeds. There’s no time like the holidays to start—by resolving to be ready before disaster strikes.
“The holiday season is a great time to give important, inexpensive gifts that say: ‘I want you to be safe!’ and reduce risk exposure for friends and loved ones,” says FEMA Regional Administrator Ken Murphy. “Gifts that can save lives are a wonderful way of welcoming in 2011. The dialogue and the mindset that goes along with it may mean even more than the gift itself.”
The Resolve to be Ready in 2011 initiative is led by FEMA’s Ready Campaign in partnership with Citizen Corps and The Advertising Council. For more information on the Ready Campaign and Citizen Corps, visit Ready.gov and CitizenCorps.gov.
