Special Message from FEMA

Resolve to be Ready 2014

Roughly half of all Americans make New Year’s resolutions. In 2014, FEMA and the Ad Council are encouraging you to Resolve to be Ready for potential emergencies by committing to make preparedness a year-round family activity. The campaign focuses on “Family Connection” to reinforce the importance of parents including their children in preparedness conversations before disasters strike.

Resolve to be Ready is all new for 2014! This year, FEMA enlisted the platform Thunderclap to reach as many people as possible with the #Prepared2014 message. Show your support by spreading this message across your social media networks.

Here’s how:

·         Join FEMA’s Thunderclap message and share a New Year's resolution of preparedness with your followers. Once you sign up, Thunderclap will sync your social media accounts to release an automatic Facebook post, Tweet or both on January 1, 2014 at 12:30 PM reminding your friends and followers to make a family emergency plan.

·         Use #Prepared2014 in your social media messaging throughout 2014 to remind friends and followers to be prepared for emergencies all year long.

·         Share preparedness messaging from the Ready Facebook and Twitter feeds.
