New Year, New You – Get Emergency Ready with FEMA

Resolve To Be Ready

For 2013, FEMA encourages one of your New Year Resolutions to include emergency ready preparations for you and your family. With FEMA’s ‘Resolve to be Ready’ campaign, the integration of technology and preparedness has lead to the creation of the FEMA mobile app, printable emergency plans, and a Family Emergency Plan template in Google Docs for Chrome users.

FEMA makes preparing for disaster in 2013 easier than ever with the FEMA App for smart phones. The app includes disaster safety tips, information on applying for recovery assistance, disaster recovery center and shelter locations, the latest FEMA blog posts, and more.

Also included at the Ready site is information on building a disaster kit, planning for business owners, planning games for kids, in ways to get involved in your community’s disaster preparedness programs.

For more information, visit FEMA’s ‘Resolve to be Ready’ site and check out their ‘Are You Ready? Guide.’
