A Citizen’s Eye View of Public Preparedness

Claire Rubin, Author/Citizen Corps Volunteer — ‘You’re Responsible For You’ (”What Should We Tell The Public?”)

August 5th, 2009 · 1 Comment

This edition of the “What Should We Tell The Public?” video series features Claire Rubin. Claire is a veteran emergency management scholar who I have written about before. She is the author of Emergency Management: The American Experience, 1900-2005 which has just been released electronically by the Public Entity Risk Institute. You can purchase it here. She is a co-editor (with John Harrald) of the Journal of Homeland Security and Emergency Management, an electronic web-based publication.

In the video below (shot between sessions at the Natural Hazards Workshop in Colorado last month), Claire makes the point that “you’re responsible for you” in an emergency, and she points out that volunteering for CERT and the Citizen Corps is another way to help out in your community.
