SEATTLE, Wash. -- On Monday, June 12, 2000 FEMA Director James Lee Witt will address the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) "Service to America Summit," and officially launch a new national public service campaign aimed at getting Americans to think about disaster prevention and to ask what their community is doing to prevent damage. The focus of the Public Service Announcement (PSA) launch is: "You can't prevent the weather, but you can prevent the damage."

The NAB, which serves and represents America's radio and television stations, has taken on FEMA's Project Impact as a national campaign, and is distributing copies of the PSA to commercial television stations. Radio versions will be distributed in September 2000. The television PSA, plus a pre-recorded interview with Director Witt will be available via satellite, Monday, June 12 at the following times/coordinates:
