FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate Encourages Americans To Resolve To Be Ready In 2011

Jan. 11, 2011
With the new year already here, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is encouraging all Americans to make emergency preparedness one of their New Year's resolutions. Resolve to be Ready in 2011 is a nationwide effort to urge individuals, families, businesses and communities to focus on being ready and aware of all the hazards that exist in their communities.

“Emergencies can happen at anytime, anywhere,” said FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate. “They can range from natural disasters such as snowstorms or flooding, to events such as power outages. The key to successful emergency response, regardless of the nature of the event, is personal preparedness.”

Fugate suggested families and businesses get an emergency supply kit, make an emergency plan and be informed of the hazards in their area.

Resolve to be Ready in 2011 is one resolution anyone can keep thanks to the tools and resources available at http://www.Ready.gov or the Spanish language site, http://www.Listo.gov. These sites include important information such as how to put together a kit, make a plan and stay informed.
