A Citizen’s Eye View of Public Preparedness

Good Advice From Fellow Blogger, New Addition to Blog Roll

May 3rd, 2008 · No Comments

I received an excellent amendment to my recommendation that citizens purchase an extra cell phone battery. The suggestion came from fellow blogger, Jimmy Jazz:

My wife and I both carry around those Energizer Energi-To-Go cell phone chargers.

Example link:

Powered by 2 AA batteries, they’re great for in a pinch. We also keep a DC charger in the car in case we need juice while driving.


It’s a good idea. There are many more good ideas (as well as a lot of other interesting things) at, Jimmy Jazz’s blog which is called In Case of Emergency. The blog is terrific, and I find it a great resource of information, analysis and links.

This is how Jimmy describes the blog:

In Case of Emergency is a blog dedicated to exploring public health preparedness efforts in the US. My primary interest is in communication, though I have a great interest in planning for public health emergencies in general. In the past, I have posted on new, or social, media use in disaster situations, crisis communications (or crisis and emergency risk communication, as the CDC calls it), homeland security, public health and open access scholarly journals.

I have found his expertise and perspective in the communications area of public health area particularly interesting and helpful. I appreciate his contribution to my blog and his encouragement. I look forward to continue working with him on the issues of public preparedness.

In Case of Emergency is among the first group of blogs I am adding to my blog roll. As our blogs have somewhat similar names, I imagine that some folks looking for Jimmy’s blog have arrived here. I hope you enjoy this blog on your way to Jimmy’s. And I hope we end helping each other with traffic.
