The blog’s new videoÂ series “What Should We Tell The Public?” today features a segment withÂ Joe Becker, the American Red Cross’ Senior Vice President for Preparedness & Response.
In this series, I am asking leadingÂ people in the homeland security/emergency management/public health preparedness community for their tips, recommendations, and ideas on what theyÂ think citizens should know andÂ do inÂ orderÂ to increase their own, their community’s and their nation’s readiness.Â
In this two-minute segment, shot yesterday on the floor of the Red Cross’s Disaster Operations Center in Washington, D.C., Joe vividly puts you in the middle of a potential scenario and asks a lot of questions about your family’s preparedness that you don’t want to be answering for the first time during an emergency.Â
Â JOE BECKER, SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT FOR PREPAREDNESS & RESPONSE, AMERICAN RED CROSS
