This document is the transcript from FEMA's June 2012 webinar. From the Citizen Corps website: "The theme for this year's National Preparedness Month is 'Pledge to Prepare' Learn about the number of easy ways that you, your organization, or your business or place of work can fulfill the pledge and become better prepared for disasters this year [...]  Free Publicity: Thousands of people visit this site. Having your events and training and education activities in one place makes it so much easier, not just for us and the public, but also leadership and the media, to learn about the great work that you're doing. Please post any upcoming events and learning opportunities on the site's events calendar. Your events will be placed on a Google map and the public will be able to search for events by zip code.  Connect with Current and New Partners: The discussion boards are a great way to meet new partners and to exchange information with the stakeholders you already work with. Please introduce yourself so that the public and other participants know who you are!  Event Ideas and Resources: Get access to new ideas on how you and your community can get involved and plan events in your community to raise awareness about emergency preparedness and help people learn to protect their homes and families from all hazards."
