I'm proud to introduce Administrator Fugate, with a video message about the completely redesigned Ready.gov:
As the Administrator said, Ready.gov is where you can learn how to prepare your home, family or business before a disaster strikes. Being prepared can mean the difference between life and death if an emergency happens, and we continually encourage Americans to take the simple steps of being informed, making a plan and getting a kit – three main areas on the site.
While the new site is our latest development, I'd like to remind you that you can get our safety tips in the palm of your hand, too. We recently released the FEMA app for Apple-powered mobile devices (it’s available for Android, too), and many of our safety tips are on the FEMA mobile website, http://m.fema.gov, which is designed to display quickly on your smartphone.
So I encourage you to check out the new Ready.gov, download the FEMA app, and take steps to prepare your family, home, business, and community before a disaster strikes.
