FEMA administrator releases video message on disaster preparedness (8/6)

The Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Administrator Craig Fugate released a Web video message highlighting the need for the public to be prepared for any emergency, according to a FEMA press release.

"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."

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 www.ready.gov.
