This document is the transcript from FEMA's May 2012 webinar. From the Citizen Corps website: "Hurricane Preparedness Week is May 27 - June 2. This webinar discussed how you can engage your community in preparing for hurricanes and their effects. Among our featured speakers were Cindy O'Neill Vitale of the Fairfield CERT [Community Emergency Response Teams] Team. Last year, Fairfield CERT received a statewide Citizen Corps award for their response efforts after Hurricane Irene impacted their community. We also heard from the Great Hurricane Blowout, a national hurricane preparedness campaign designed to help families prepare in advance for hurricane season. In addition, there is a presentation by the Florida Division of Emergency Management, which provides an overview of some of Florida's hurricane preparedness activities. Citizen Corps and Ready also discussed FEMA's [Federal Emergency Management Agency] plans for Hurricane Preparedness Week and how you can get involved."
