On 9/11, Safe America Foundation Aims To Get A Million Americans To “Drill Down” & Text For Safety

June 6th, 2010 · No Comments

The Safe America Foundation will again be holding its “9/11 Drill Down For Safety” campaign on September 11th. The Foundation is hoping to more than double the 400,000 people from 127 cities/drill sites in 27 states who participated in last year’s inaugural effort.

The campaign will include a special focus on the importance of the use of text messaging in an emergency as past instances have shown that during a significant crisis texting may still provide a way for people to communicate.

Safe America’s goals for this year’s campaign are to: “engage over 1 million people to demonstrate preparedness; empower citizens to practice preparedness texting; Coordinate with government, business, and nonprofit organizations in support of National Preparedness Month activities; solicit people to Take the Pledge now at by registering their commitment to prepare; and Take the Pledge that you and/or your organization will join other Americans this year in demonstrating preparedness.

In May, Safe America hired disaster readiness expert Brit Weber as Executive Vice President Homeland Security and Preparedness, and he will help coordinate the “Drill Down” campaign.
