Tampa, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/26/2013 -- September is National Preparedness Month. It is a time for families to focus on preparing emergency plans.
The Ad Council recently surveyed 800 adults across the nation about emergency preparedness. "Six out of 10 American families said they did not have a family emergency plan, according to the survey," a CNN article states. "Only 19 percent felt they were 'very prepared' for a disaster."
Along with its survey, the Ad Council released a humorous PSA that sheds light on this statistic by showing a family discussing their ironic un-disaster-plan. The viral video was used as a discussion point in a new blog post by the team at MamaBear Family Safety App. The post focuses on disaster preparedness and includes resources on how families can deal with disaster when it strikes.
The makers of the MamaBear Family Safety App spend a great deal of time and energy keeping parents informed and their children safe which can be a helpful tool in the event of a disaster.
This September, during FEMA’s National Preparedness Month, the team at MamaBear is sharing information about disaster preparedness plans encouraging families to take action.
