Blog 1: Crisis Communication

While searching the internet for websites and organizations that help people prepare for disasters, I stumbled upon the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s website, and they have an excellent Emergency Preparedness & Response page ( http://www.bt.cdc.gov/ ). This page has every natural and health disaster you can think of listed! On the top of the page they have listed all the letters of the alphabet and you can click on any letter and get a list of possible disasters to learn more information about them. For example, I clicked on the “Ts” and then on “Tornadoes” and the page loaded with different links on what to do before a tornado, what to do during a tornado, what to do after a tornado, plus a bunch of additional links and articles. I’m very impressed with the amount of information on the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s website, and would definitely recommend it to people. I’m actually going to save it to my tool bar in case I need it for anything! You never know!

    Good, the CDC is an excellent source of information for disasters, so this was a good one to discuss.

    Ways to improve your blog post next time around: make your link dynamic, so the reader can just click on it to be taken to another page; break up the text with paragraph breaks so it is easier to read, and add images if/when appropriate to dress up the post.
