As the countdown to New Year’s Eve continues, FEMA is doing our part to encourage all of you out there still looking for a New Year’s resolution to Resolve to be Ready in 2011. Last week, we highlighted
“This was a challenging year for families across Middle and West Tennessee. No one will soon forget the historic floods that stretched from Nashville to Memphis and numerous towns in between. Throughout the disaster response and the longer-term recovery, Tennesseans have truly stepped up to help each other out. That’s why, as families and friends come together to celebrate the holidays and close the book on 2010, we’re asking you, if you haven’t already, to get prepared now, before the next disaster strikes.”
You can read their full op-ed here. As they note, FEMA and TEMA were proud to team up to help residents and communities across Tennessee during this recovery, and we’re proud that we were able to team up again to remind everyone of the importance of being prepared. So especially with severe winter storms hitting many of us across the country, take a few minutes to sit down with your family and follow our basic steps for getting prepared. Join Craig and Jim and Resolve to be Ready in 2011.
