This edition of theÂ “What Should We Tell The Public?” series features John Gibb, Director of New York State’s Emergency Management Agency. John is a leader in the field, and I have quoted him on previous occasions.
In the video, Gibb recommends that citizens subscribe to government emergency text/e-mail notifications such as theÂ NY-Alert system that he oversees (and which I get on my BlackBerry). We shot the video after Gibb spoke to the White House’s Long-Term Disaster Recovery Task Force stakeholder forum earlier this month.
