People get ready

We get press releases!

I recently came across your blog and can see that you have a large following in the New York City area. Because of this, I wanted to reach out to you about a new campaign aimed at educating New Yorkers about how to prepare for emergencies.

September is National Preparedness Month, and in order to encourage New Yorkers to prepare for disasters the New York City Office of Emergency Management, the American Red Cross in Greater New York and the Ad Council have launched a new public service advertising campaign called Ready New York.

The campaign asks individuals to get prepared by taking three simple steps:

1) Get an emergency supply kit.

2) Make a family emergency plan.

3) Be information about the different types of emergencies that could occur and the best responses to them.

It is important to engage your readers and all New Yorkers in becoming better prepared for emergencies in their homes, business and schools.

Toward that end, we encourage you to write about Ready New York on your site and share the following “easy-to-use” social networking tools in your post:
