Blog 1: Crisis Comm

I had a fairly easy time finding a site that offered information for disaster preparedness that was to my liking.  In my first search, I found #FEMA’s checklist of necessities and procedures they use in order to be preparded for a disaster.  The checklist can be found at http://www.fema.gov/areyouready/preface.shtm.  I personally like this page for the simple fact that it offers an entire checklist in an easy-to-read format.  The site offers everything from “Why Prepare?” to “Recovering From a Disaster”, which are found on the left hand side with several other important tabs.  #FEMA also uses bullet points to show the steps they take in everything from recognizing #terrorism to dealing with terrorist attacks after the fact.  Another thing I really like about this site is that it not only shows how #FEMA prepares for disasters, but also how people in general can and should prepare.  I think it is necessary for the public to know what can be done before hand on their end, and not just rely on the hands of the organization.  FEMA’s website for disaster preparedness caught my eye, especially because this organization is so well known for responding to natural disasters.  I hope you find it intriguing as well!  #mc3580

    Good discussion of FEMA’s online information.

    Couple of things. The hash tags (#mc3580) are for use on Twitter not on the blog.

    Also be sure to add categories (“crisis communication” for the class category and “Blog 1” for the first blog assignment, “Blog 2” for the second and so on) and tags (you can use some of those already provided or create your own) for each post. These help people find your post on the web.

    Finally, consider breaking the text in your post up with paragraph breaks. And add images as appropriate to dress things up.
