A Citizen’s Eye View of Public Preparedness

Do A Risk Analysis Of Your Area, Prepare For Those Risks & Ask Govt For Info You Need: Defense Department’s Jack Holt (’What Should We Tell The Public?’) Video

September 22nd, 2010 · 1 Comment

At the Red Cross’s Emergency Social Data Summit, I had the opportunity to speak with Jack Holt, Senior Strategist for Emerging Media at the U.S. Department of Defense,

In this edition of the blog’s “What Should We Tell The Public?” video series, Holt recommends that citizens “do a risk analysis” of their area and then prepare for those risks. As part of that preparation, Holt recommends that people equip their cellphones in advance with important numbers such as the local police’s non-emergency contact and the U.S. government’s terrorism tips line. And, he suggests that citizens have a responsibility to contact their local, state and federal government officials proactively to tell them what information they need to be ready for emergencies.
