Today, FEMA announced the launch of a new public service [announcement] (PSA) to raise awareness about the importance of personal preparedness for emergencies. While the PSA, We Prepare Every Day, targets every member of the community, it aims to deliver a message of independence and personal preparedness by featuring people with disabilities taking charge to prepare themselves, their families, and their communities for emergencies.
The PSA includes open captioning and a certified deaf interpreter. An audio described version is also available to provide access to viewers who are blind or have low vision.
“As we celebrate a quarter century of the ADA, we look to people with disabilities as leading the way,” said Craig Fugate, FEMA Administrator. “By taking their own preparedness actions every day, they set an example for all of us, including their families and their communities.”
