FEMA Administrator Fugate Promotes Citizen Preparedness

 

August 5, 2009

 

Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Administrator Craig Fugate has released a Web video message highlighting the need for the public to be prepared for any emergency.

"Our entire emergency management team has a role to play when it comes to preparing for and responding to the next disaster," said Administrator Fugate. "One of the most important parts of that team is the public. The more prepared the public is now, by getting an emergency response kit, making an emergency action plan, and getting a skill, like CPR, the stronger our emergency response team will be."

Administrator Fugate's video can be found on the following websites:

Tips on how to be prepared, including how to make an emergency plan, and what should be in an emergency response kit, can be found at MainePrepares or Ready.gov.
