A Citizen’s Eye View of Public Preparedness

What Can The Yankees Teach Fans About The Need For A Family Emergency Plan?

November 4th, 2009 · 1 Comment

New York City’s Office of Emergency Management is taking advantage of Yankee-mania here as an angle in its most recent “Tip of the Week” sent out earlier this week:

“With a 3-1 lead over the Phillies, the [UPDATE: World Champion] Yankees have been focused on driving runs home this World Series. But when the catcher is blocking the plate, a runner needs to change his plan.

Some emergencies may make it difficult or even impossible to return home. OEM recommends New Yorkers identify two meeting points— one close to home and another outside of the neighborhood— where loved ones can reunite in case an emergency blocks the way home.”

    Boo Yankees!

    The Phila Dept of Public Health’s Flu Facebook page ( is counting on Ryan Howard to have a multi-homer game tonight:

    The Philadelphia Department of Public Health is full of Phillies fans. We’re concerned, though, that Ryan Howard’s struggles at the plate MAY be caused by a fear of catching H1N1 influenza. We recommend that he, and everyone, talks to their regular healthcare provider about getting vaccinated against H1N1 influenza.

    Now that that’s out of the way, we fully expect him to have a multi-homer game tomorrow night. Go Phillies!
