A Citizen’s Eye View of Public Preparedness

Stephen Kempf (FEMA Regional Administrator) — “What Should We Tell The Public”

March 7th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Between sessions of a conference on special needs citizens and disasters, I filmed a “What Should We Tell The Public?” video with Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) Regional Administrator Stephen Kempf. In the segment, Kempf tells viewers to determine the emergency risks in their own area and then be able to take care of themselves for 72 hours. Kempf oversees FEMA Region 2 which includes New York, New Jersey, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. He himself is disabled as a result of a major back injury he suffered as a firefighter.

    Mr. Kempf in very few words well describes what actions and supplies are so critical to any family before, during, and after a disaster.

    A fire struck our family 5 years ago. The points he makes about having a bug out kit and vital documents readily available saved our family.

    Heed his words.
