A Citizen’s Eye View of Public Preparedness

On YouTube’s 5th Anniversary, Thank You From A Technology-Challenged Blogger

May 18th, 2010 · No Comments

Yesterday was YouTube’s 5th Anniversary, and I wanted to express my appreciation to the site for making it so easy for even a technology neophyte like myself to use.

Shooting with the equally user friendly Flip camera and then posting my (often shaky camera work) to YouTube, I have been able to utilize a lot of video both from others as well as homemade. The primary example of the latter has been the blog’s “What Should We Tell The Public?” series in which I ask someone in the field for what citizens should know about emergency preparedness. I have posted 43 of these short videos.

Spokes-Muppet Grover Urges Families To Prepare For Emergencies

One of the favorites in the series was with that noted preparedness expert, Grover the spokes-Muppet for Sesame Workshop’s preparedness program for young kids and their families, “Let’s Get Ready! Planning Together For Emergencies” done in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Ready.Gov campaign and the Ad Council.
