New “Drill Down For Safety” Campaign On 9/11 Aims To Increase Preparedness

May 20th, 2009 · 1 Comment

The Safe America Foundation is launching a new campaign, “Drill Down for Safety,” designed to “create local practice drills on an annual basis in communities large and small to assure that Americans are prepared for disasters.” 

The nationwide campaign will focus initially on getting businesses — small, medium-sized and large — to organize emergency drills during September 11th. According to Safe America official Bob Surrusco, the organization will be creating three scenarios — a power outage, a flood, and a pandemic — for participants to use in their exercises. ”Getting people to practice – just like staging a fire drill,” the Safe America website explains, “will be a first step in making executives, families, disabled, senior citizens and children feel empowered – and convinced – that in an emergency, their actions can both protect their lives and minimize property loss.”
