A Citizen’s Eye View of Public Preparedness

John Gibb/NY State Emergency Management Director: Subscribe To Emergency Alerts (’What Should We Tell The Public?’ Video Series)

November 21st, 2009 · 2 Comments

This edition of the “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 the 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.
